The Central New York Humanities Corridor, generously supported by an award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will present the annual Digital Witness Symposium on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3.
The symposium is free and open to the public. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be provided. Co-sponsors are the Syracuse University Humanities Center, the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the Digital Humanities Initiative at Hamilton College.
Now in its fourth year, the Digital Witness Symposium has grown into a regional event. This year the symposium has been organized through a collaboration with Hamilton College. “We’re delighted to be able to continue to host the Symposium on multiple campuses,” notes Roger Hallas, Associate Professor of English and co-organizer of the symposium. “We’re very excited to be partnering with Hamilton College, which has a strong commitment to digital humanities through its Mellon-funded Digital Humanities Initiative.”
