Scott B. Weingart is Carnegie Mellon University’s Digital Humanities Specialist. His research exists at the intersection of history of science, visual culture, communication, computational social science, and digital humanities.
Historical and modern illustrations are surprisingly effective lenses through which to explore overlaps between knowledge and practice. How we think about and communicate around knowledge co-evolves with the communities we form. Sometimes we unite as one Republic of Letters; at other times we are split between Two Cultures. Today, communities like HASTAC are symptoms and instigators of a turn away from the Hierarchy of Sciences. Weingart’s talk will untangle the thread of these turns over the last thousand years, and place them in our present context.
