The colloquium will address the Middle Eastern culture as being defined and driven by digital culture. It aims to discuss the multiple uses of big data and computation techniques in humanities, public policymaking and the law as well as understand how the humanities and the law can help improve the collection and use of such data. Digital humanities is a diverse and growing field of research that brings digital tools and computing methodologies to the study of humanities.
