We have exciting news! After a lot of work and thanks to “a little help from our friends”, we can announce our new Master in Digital Humanities for a Sustainable World at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. It is a master program designed to take professionals of humanities into a future where their input and knowledge is key in the era we have already entered. Students will have the opportunity to learn about digital humanities and its importance towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs 2030 Agenda). They will be leaded by an incredible team of teachers and professionals that are as excited about this project as we are.
Wor(l)ds Lab is part of the exhibition at the Centro Centro (City Hall) celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
MarcoPolo, the web for surfing the words used on Twitter by the political parties, has been chosen as one of the projects representing the research of the UAM. Visitors will have the opportunity to try it in a computer that has been installed in the exhibition.
Besides, Ana Ruiz-Sánchez will present our research group on November 29 (7:30 p.m.). For this occasion, she has chosen two of our lines of research. On the one hand, she will talk about MarcoPolo and the study of online political discourses. On the other, she will talk about the ethical and scientific challenges that we face when studying multilingualism.
Wor(l)ds Lab participates in the II World Forum on Urban Violence and Education for Coexistence and Peace in Madrid. It is a “meeting place for local leaders, international organisations and networks, the academic world, NGOs and civil society.” Its purpose is “to open a joint process of debate, reflection and construction of common solutions that foster urban environments capable of eliminating expressions of violence.”
The project Pacto de convivencia will be presented in the forum and Ana Ruiz-Sánchez will take part in a plenary session on violence, radicalization, extremism, and international terrorism.
