Teaching Computing in Arts and Humanities

Computing methods are becoming increasingly useful in many areas of humanities and arts. A panel of faculty from both MIT and Cornell University discuss incorporating computing into their teaching. Panel includes: Agustín Rayo, Associate Dean, MIT School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and Professor of Philosophy; Alberto Abadie, Associate Director, MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, and Professor of Economics; Michael Scott Cuthbert, Associate Professor of Music at MIT; Erik Demaine, Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at MIT; Eran Egozy, Professor of the Practice in Music Technology at MIT; and Éva Tardos, Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University.
 
In fields far beyond engineering and science — from political science and urban studies to anthropology and linguistics — some of today’s most exciting new research is fueled by advanced computational capabilities. The MIT Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing will create the next generation of highly trained computational thinkers and doers who can offer the world the cultural, ethical, and historical consciousness to use technology for the common good.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our mission is to advance knowledge; to educate students in science, engineering, and technology; and to tackle the most pressing problems facing the world today. We are a community of hands-on problem-solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place.

The MIT YouTube channel features videos about all types of MIT research, including the robot cheetah, LIGO, gravitational waves, mathematics, and bombardier beetles, as well as videos on origami, time capsules, and other aspects of life and culture on the MIT campus. Our goal is to open the doors of MIT and bring the Institute to the world through video.
