Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Location: R&D Bar @ Stata Center MIT (4th Floor)
This convivial event seeks to foster formal and informal connections between computer scientists, humanists, and social scientists with shared interests in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). How might computer scientists draw on humanistic and social scientific perspectives as they design interfaces? How might humanists and social scientists draw on the expertise of computer scientists in studying the cultural impact of computational technologies?
This interdisciplinary salon is an outgrowth of MIT’s new Computational Cultures Initiative, sponsored by MIT’s School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS). Its co-conveners, Professors Fox Harrell (CMS/CSAIL) and Graham M. Jones (Anthropology), will begin with introductory remarks, followed by lightning talks showcasing the cutting-edge research of scholars from departments and programs across the Institute, including: Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (CSAIL); Anthropology; Comparative Media Studies (CMS); Music and Theater Arts; Science, Technology and Society (STS); Architecture; and more.
Buffet-style snacks and bar service will be provided. This event is free, but advanced registration is required. Please click this link to register: https://goo.gl/forms/9NC3yUhdVJLnn9zb2
