        Subject: London reprise of Busa Lecture

Subscribers to Humanist within striking distance of London might like to note that, as part of the Arts and Humanities Festival of King's College London, on Thursday 17 October from 19.30-21.00, Willard McCarty will be speaking on 'The Digital and the Human: Remembering the Future of the Digital Humanities', a version of his landmark Busa lecture. Those who did not have an opportunity to hear this remarkable lecture at DH 2013 in Nebraska might welcome this European repeat. Following Willard's lecture, I will introduce a short panel discussion on the themes of the lecture. Members of the panel will include Dr David Berry, University of Sussex, editor of the recent volume, 'Understanding the Digital Humanities' and the author of a forthcoming book on 'The Critical Digital Humanities', and Professor Paul Conway of the School of Information, University of Michigan, who is currently a Visiting Senior Fellow at King's College London. 

The event takes place in the Council Room in the King's Building on the Strand Campus of King's College London. Please help spread the word! The event is free, but all attending are asked to register at: https://digitalandthehuman.eventbrite.co.uk/
