HuC Live!

The main theme of the event will be Bridging the Gulf which we explore through a claim by Clifford Geertz: ‘I think the perception of there being a deep gulf between science and the humanities is false.’ We will try to explain why we are building that bridge and why it could be important to you.

We are happy to welcome prof. dr. Antal van den Bosch, director of the Meertens Institute and Professor of Language and Speech Technology at the Radboud University in Nijmegen as the keynote speaker. He will reflect on Geertz’ statement from his own experiences working in both computer science and the humanities.
