Alan Liu at Otago

I’m fortunate to be hosting Professor Alan Liu (UC Santa Barbara) for two back-to-back events next week:

1) Alan Liu on “WhatEvery1Says About the Humanities”
Friday, 27 November 2015 at 5:15pm – RMOOT (Richardson Moot Court)

Professor Alan Liu discusses the sociocultural context and digital-humanities methods involved in the 4Humanities initiative’s ongoing study of public discourse on the humanities.

2) Alan Liu on “Literature+: Teaching the Humanities in the Digital Age”
Friday, 27 November 2015 at 2:00pm – Commerce 2.22

How will humanist pedagogical ideals and practices adapt to the digital age? Anyone who cares about what teaching the humanities in a digital age could or should look like in the future should come along to this event with distinguished scholar and champion of the humanities Professor Alan Liu (UC Santa Barbara).
