Home >> Events >> Digital Humanities Faculty Research Group: Ethical OS
Nov 6 2018 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

The faculty research group of DH@SDSU is a reading group that serves as the central hub for building a research community around topic and questions related to Digital Humanities. Faculty from across disciplines meet once-a-month (and over lunch!) to discuss readings in the field of digital humanities. In the process, we are creating a cohort of research faculty interested in exploring how traditional humanities matter in and for our digital world.

Ethical OS

The next meeting of our faculty research group is Tuesday, November 6 from 12:30-1:30 in the DH Center (Love Library, 61). Lunch will be served; kindly RSVP to digitalhumanities@sdsu.edu. Graduate students are always welcome.

Dr. Pam Lach (our Digital Humanities Librarian) will led a conversation about a new guidebook/toolkit, called the Ethical OS, which comes out of a partnership between the Institute of the Future (a Palo Alto-based think tank), and the Tech and Society Solutions Lab. You can read a recent story from Wired about the guide here: https://www.wired.com/story/ethical-os/. The PDF is 78 pages but is a PowerPoint presentation that is a fast, easy read. This is a different type of reading text and genre, but we think it dovetails well with some of our group's recent readings (especially Safiya Noble's Algorithms of Oppression) as well as with our own design-thinking process for the DH Center.

And join us for our final meeting of the Fall 2018 semester on Tuesday, December 4 at 12:30 in the DH Center.
