Can data science and the humanities work together? (Hint: yes! And they do!)

As a scientist, are you confused about what the humanities are? As a humanist, does the word “science” make you anxious? In many cases, data science and digital humanities (DH) use the same tools and approaches but speak different languages.

Learn how digital humanities aren’t that different from data science as this panel presents individual DH projects and research, showcasing the tools and methods frequently employed by data scientists, while asking research questions that data science might not have explored. By the end of the session, panelists will show that humanists and scientists can be better – together!

Confirmed speakers:

  • Dr. John Knox, UNC-Wilmington
  • Margaret Baker, NC State
  • Dr. Matthew Jansen, UNC-Chapel Hill, Data Analysis Librarian, Digital Research Services

About the series

During Summer 2022, the NC State Data Science Academy is hosting a webinar series of virtual panels showcasing various ways to build a career in data science.

The “Hot Topics in Data Science” series of eight panels will feature diverse groups of speakers discussing data science opportunities and addressing current conversations in the field.

Interdisciplinary panels will bring students, academics, and experts from industry and government together to discuss the ways data science is all around us and to share strategies for broadening participation in data science.

Data science is everywhere and for everyone. Offering more than individual career advice, this series will give attendees systemic strategies for continuing to expand data science opportunities for all.
