Symposium Overview

Have you been following developments in digital humanities? Are you ready to take the plunge and develop new projects? Would you like to take your digital humanities projects to the next level?
The Twin Cities Digital Humanities Symposium is an opportunity for scholars (faculty and graduate students) from humanities and computer science fields, academic technologists, programmers, research consultants, librarians, and other academic support staff from Minnesota to come together to spark new research. The symposium will offer inspiring examples of digital humanities scholarship, provide an opportunity to discuss tools and issues at the heart of the research, allow you to network with potential research partners, and -- more than anything -- provide ample opportunity for participant discussion. This research retreat is designed to facilitate brainstorming, problem solving, and inspiration. 

Spark Fest is organized by the University of Minnesota Libraries and Macalester College DeWitt Wallace Library. The symposium is co-sponsored by CLIC (Cooperating Libraries in Consortium) and the UMN College of Liberal Arts Office of Information Technology.
