2014-15: Expanding Models for Humanities Research

Humanities research in the twenty-first century can entail an ever-increasing range of methodologies and approaches that allow scholars to ask new questions and expand their inquiries in new directions. Today humanists may find themselves modeling data, digitally mapping their historical and literary finds and analyses, engaging in performance, creating research networks, curating (not just using) virtual archives, thinking visually, collaborating in pairs or groups in laboratory and studio environments, and expanding their research questions into a variety of non-humanities fields. The 2014-15 IHR Faculty Seminar Series, “Expanding Models for Humanities Research,” explored and evaluated such approaches to humanities research through presentations by ASU faculty and visiting scholars.
