Digital and Computational Studies

New and emerging technologies are transforming the production and dissemination of knowledge. Digital and computational methods and analysis are creating the ability and opportunity to address new questions and data sets, and adding new perspectives to the core questions that have always concerned the humanities, social sciences, and natural & physical sciences.

But these technological transformations are not solely a one-way street. The liberal arts, broadly speaking, also have the power – perhaps the responsibility – to participate in and shape the development, use and interpretative capabilities of these tools. Bowdoin’s Digital and Computational Studies Initiative invites faculty across the College to work together to integrate new technologies, methodologies and forms of knowledge production into our curriculum and our scholarship.

Upcoming Events

"Across the Divide: Intermediality and American Art" Symposium

September 30, 2016 | 8:45 AM
Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom

How do artists exchange motifs and tropes from one kind of art to another? How do different media play against each other? Can the integration of aesthetic concepts from different media interfere with each other? How might experiences with different media spark new and surprising experiences for audiences and artists alike? The symposium 'Across the Divide: Intermediality and American Art' takes these questions as a point of departure for an investigation of this practice in American art.
