Paul Fishwick - Multi-Disciplinary Teaching Across Computing and the Humanities Paul Fishwick. University of Texas-Dallas. Inside a 13th Century Water Clock: Multi-Disciplinary Teaching Across Computing and the Humanities. Digital Humanities Seminar, University of Kansas Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities & Hall Center for the Humanities April 3, 2014 http://idrh.ku.edu -- Can the connections between the humanities and computer science include arts and humanities informing computer science? We are familiar with the idea that computer science results in technologies, and that these are then used as tools by artists and humanists. Going in the other direction is also possible, where deep concepts in computing are covered through cultural artifacts. We will include practical examples of this approach, including al Jazari's water clock. These examples create new possibilities for humanist-computer science collaborations, and they also suggest that computer science can be viewed as empirically-driven rather than existing purely as an "artificial science."
