Again, it's not exactly political science, but the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities often touches on issues and applications that seem potentially relevant to the scholarly study of political life.

For instance, from 12:30-1:45 tomorrow (Tues, Sept 26th), Kevin Bertram will present "You Can Take It With You: The Nascent Role for Mobile in the Digital Humanities" in UM 's McKeldin Library B0135

From the announcement:
"More than 4 out of 5 American adults own at least one wireless device, and there are now more mobile phones in the US than televisions and computers, combined. Despite the ubiquity of the cell phone, we are still only in the infancy of adoption of mobile's more advanced capabilities, and full-fledged explorations of its use within the humanities. This session will feature discussion of the current mobile landscape and possible visions for the mobile-enabled future, with a focus on innovative uses of mobile technology in the arts, and the technology's influence on language, literature and culture."
Kevin Bertram is founder and CEO of Distributive Networks, a DC company that develops mobile content and technology services.

Other MITH Digital Dialogues this fall - all are FREE and open to the public.
