A symposium on alternative practices in humanities research.
27th September, 2014. Grimond Lecture Theatre 3.

Knowledge Machines is a free one-day symposium that showcases different approaches to using digital methodologies for the humanities. Resources, discussion points, and related materials are made available before and after the symposium on the symposium’s wiki, in order to move the discussion about the future of the humanities out of the usual confines of the conference hall, and into the digital sphere.
