Subject: Fwd: UCLA Mellon Seminar in Digital Humanities (Winter 2009): Jan. 5th
Happy New Year! I wanted to remind you that our first Mellon seminar in Digital Humanities for 2009 will be this coming Monday, January 5th, with Professor Johanna Drucker. The seminar meets from 2-5 PM in 5628 Math and Sciences, the Visualization Portal. To find the portal, enter the Math and Sciences Building from the east side (which puts you on the fifth floor) and follow the signs. The monthly seminars are open to graduate students, faculty, and the general public. Participants outside of UCLA can also join us at Entropia in Second Life.
