DEC 3rd - Outsourcing Religion CSIS Event

Thursday, December 3, 2015 : 9:00A.M. - 5:00P.M.

UC Davis, King Hall, Rm. 2100A


Studies of religion and religious texts have played a formative 

role in the development of digital scholarship. Early projects 

in the digital humanities including the work of Jesuit priest 

Roberto Busa and Reverend John Ellison pioneered in 

computational methods originally designed to organize, 

process, and evaluate religious text. This interdisciplinary 

workshop will explore this alternative history of the digital 

humanities while also charting potential futures for religious 

studies scholarship. Bringing together scholars from across 

the humanities and social sciences, we will address the ways 

that the study of religion might use digital tools to compile 

and analyze new data sets, help inform ongoing conversations 

about the ethics of open access publishing and the circulation 

of digital information, and effectively contribute to a world of 

rapidly changing scholarship.
