        Subject: Digital Humanities: A Transdisciplinary Perspective, by Andrew Hugill - Tuesday, 8th of August 2017  3pm

Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group Seminar

Digital Humanities: A Transdisciplinary Perspective
Professor Andrew Hugill (Bath Spa, UK)

This seminar presents several interwoven lines of research in the digital humanities from the transdisciplinary work of Professor Andrew Hugill, Director of Creative Computing at Bath Spa University, UK. Hugill has a distinctive perspective on the field through his work in music composition and musicology, computer science and 'pataphysics. In particular, he will explore the challenges that arise when the objective precisions of computer systems encounter the subjective ambiguities of human beings, and the position of music in digital humanities research. In the process, he will consider such key concepts as creativity, style, logic, flow, exceptions, contradictions, and the pataphysical clinamen. Hugill is the author of 'Pataphysics: A Useless Guide (MIT Press, 2012) and The Digital Musician (Routledge, 2008).
