In the last decades, computing has become a standard part of academic and scholarly life, both in American Studies and across the disciplines.
At the least, computers are necessary tools that facilitate research, teaching and communication, but for many practitioners computing has served to reshape both the methods and theories that underlie their work. While many members of the American Studies Association are actively working in areas of digital humanities, and many more are influenced by the rise of new approaches that computing has enabled, there has yet to form a unified point of contact for ASA members interested in pursuing digital humanities from within an American Studies framework.
The Digital Humanities Caucus will work to further communication and collaboration by:

The Digital Humanities Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks ASA conference attendees to participate in a session entitled Digital Shorts: The Fun and the Fury. The session will consist of “lightning talks” in which participants describe digital projects in 3-5 minute presentations, receive community feedback, and discuss issues raised by the talks.
