Join us for a lightning round of fifteen fast-paced final project presentations that will showcase the digital research of Temple faculty and graduate students supported by the Digital Scholarship Center and the Center for the Humanities at Temple. Participant presentations focus on the use of digital methods to answer new research questions in the humanities and social sciences.

Presenters include Faculty Fellows and Graduate Externs in the Digital Scholarship Center, and graduate students in the CHAT/DSC Digital Scholars Program for 2017–2018 academic year. Projects range widely, including digital reconstructions of medieval Spanish architecture, the sonification of SEPTA data, text analysis of government and journalist tweets, and a prototype plastic recycling machine for 3D printing. Researchers employ social media, textual and network analysis methods, along with digital mapping and 3D modeling. Participants come from Architecture, Political Science, Art History, English, Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, Media and Communication, Music, Spanish, Anthropology, Sociology, and History.
