ADHC Talks (Live Online): ‘Spinning plates: creating digital outcomes for ongoing humanities research’ Online

Prof. Loewen will discuss how digital tools and computational approaches serve his teaching and research. His example will be the Global Critical Philosophy of Religion project, a collaboration of over two dozen scholars from five continents that has been ongoing since 2017.  The project’s work is made public on a WordPress site hosted by the University of Alabama’s College of Arts and Sciences. Loewen will show how the overall question of the project – “Can philosophy of religion enter the globalized, 21st-century world? If so, how?” – is best answered by a combination of conventional scholarly publications and an open-access, online presence. He will then explain how these outcomes feed into a digital humanities project that runs (slowly) in the background.

 

About the Presenter: 

Nathan Loewen is an Associate Professor in the Department of Humanities at the University of Alabama. Dr. Loewen’s teaching and research ask questions about how philosophers of religion might widen the scope of their data, and integrate theory and methods beyond the conventions of their field.
