This an absolute, unadulterated, unsolicited plug for the Henry Art Gallery here in Seatte, WA. They have been putting on some amazing presentations and this is one more of them:
The Simpson Center for the Humanities invites you to join Johanna Drucker, Professor of Information Studies at UCLA, for a talk on the the Art of Designing Interpretation in Digital Environments. It will be held at the Henry Art Gallery on the UW Campus on Friday, October 22 · 5:00pm – 7:00pm.
Humanists are deeply involved in interpretation, and the conventions of print environments embody approaches to scholarly work that emerged from interpretative activity. What should be considered when approaching the design of digital environments for interpretative work? How will these support some of the crucial features of traditional humanistic work at the same time as engaging with the capacities of digital environments (social networking, real time refresh, extensible reference fields, etc.)? This talk lays out some parameters and questions for thinking about design for humanist interpretation.
