We’re delighted to be able to publicise our programme for this term, full details of which are available on the main IHR site.

First up is Professor Magnus Huber (Universitaet Giessen), who will speak on what can be learned from the Old Bailey Online corpus for scholars of spoken English.

A new venture for us this term will be the paper from Professor Dan Cohen, who will speak live from his desk at George Mason University in Fairfax. Virginia, to a live audience in London and to the audience watching online. We’ll shortly be having a ‘dry run’ at this, to check that all the technical details are in order.

The third session will be a roundtable discussion, featuring Alistair Dunning from the JISC, Professor Andrew Prescott, newly installed as Head of the department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London), and Dr Melissa Terras, Deputy Director of the newly founded UCL Centre for Digital Humanities.
