In September, the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities, co-directed by Arienne Dwyer (Associate Professor, Anthropology) and Brian Rosenblum (Associate Librarian, KU Libraries), will host a three-day Digital Humanities Forum. The event will allow KU and non-KU faculty, technologists, librarians, and graduate students to explore the theory and practice of knowledge representation, broadly conceived, and to showcase their digital humanities projects and methodologies.

The forum will culminate on September 24 with a one-day digital humanities conference, "Representing Knowledge in the Digital Humanities," featuring a keynote talk by noted information management and XML markup specialist C.M. Sperberg-McQueen, founder and principal of Black Mesa Technologies. The conference will include panels and poster sessions showcasing digital humanities projects and research from KU and other institutions.
