The NUlab Fellows are starting up a Digital Humanities / Computational Social Science reading group to benefit the graduate students and faculty connected with NUlab. Interested people from elsewhere are, of course, welcome as well.

The idea is to bring the NUlab together around highly relevant interdisciplinary research and engage in cross disciplinary discussion. For each session we are asking a NUlab faculty member to recommend an article or two, sending those readings out to the community a week in advance, and convening to make sense of it all.

Our first two reading groups will be Wednesdays October 15th & 22nd at noon in the DSC.
