Description: THE COLD WAR AND A "NEW HUMANISM": THE HISTORY OF THE FIRST HUMANITIES COMPUTING CENTER Roberto Busa was an Italian Jesuit scholar who collaborated with IBM to produce a massive concordance to the works of St. Thomas Aquinas. In this talk, Dr. Steve Jones illuminates this digital humanities origin story. He examines relationships between the layers of hardware, software, human agents, culture, and history, and answers the question of how specific technologies afford and even constrain cultural practices, including in this case the academic research agendas of humanities computing and, later, digital humanities.
