Technology and the Humanities
A Talk at Hopkins

John D'Arms, president of the American Council of Learned Societies, will give a talk called "Humanistic Scholarship in the Digital Age: Prospects and Projects," at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept.30, in Mudd Hall Auditorium at The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. His talk is the inaugural lecture of the Paula U. Hamburger Lecture Series on Technology and the Humanities, established by the Hamburger family to advance discussion about the future of the humanities at the research university.

D'Arms, adjunct professor of history and classics at Columbia University, has a distinguished career in the humanities. He has been a spokesman for the humanities on a national level for years, and was appointed to the National Council for the Humanities by President Clinton in 1994. His scholarly work focuses on the history and archaeology of ancient Rome and the Bay of Naples. Prior to his appointment at the ACLS, he held several positions at the University of Michigan including professor of both classical studies and history, chair of the Department of Classical Studies, dean of the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies and vice provost for academic affairs. D'Arms also served as director of the American Academy in Rome and the A.W. Mellon Professor in its School of Classical Studies from 1977 to 1980. His publications include Romans on the Bay of Naples (Harvard U. Press, 1970) and Commerce and Social Standing in Ancient Rome (Harvard U. Press, 1981).

The event is free and open to the public. A reception with D'Arms will follow the presentation. To R.S.V.P. or for information about the event, call (410) 516-8327 or e-mail shodges@jhu.edu.
