Now more than ever students and faculty are asked to be proficient in the latest digital tools and technologies while considering how these materials may be useful to their teaching and research. In this talk, Dr. Curtis will survey the current state of the field in Digital Japanese Studies, including recent projects, perennial changes, and sites of community building. Dr. Curtis will discus her own beginnings in digital humanities exploration as a premodern historian and digital skeptic to highlight how students and mentors alike can think through the benefits and drawbacks of employing digital methods in their work.
