CADRE Symposium - Bringing HUMANities into Computational Research 
Wednesday, April 13, 2022
3-4:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the OSU Humanities Initiative

While the humanities are not generally thought of as computational fields, they have an increasing role in advancing technologies in our everyday world. Human analysis of language, for example, can elevate existing technologies for enhanced societal impact and inform the development of new technological affordances for changing the landscape of interdisciplinary research. In the OSU English department, researchers are taking both central and collaborative roles in design, development and evaluation of computational work by applying linguistic insights to increase the accuracy of artificial intelligence and to leverage big data in rapidly tracking language use.

This panel discussion will introduce three such projects at OSU. The first is an NSF-funded intelligent tutoring system for scientific writing. The second was funded by Oklahoma Humanities to identify characteristics of quality paraphrases and contribute to the automatic processing and creation of paraphrased text. The final project is a suite of tools for analyzing language use on social media, developed as a component of a dissertation. The discussion will highlight how applied linguists are expanding the diverse opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration and inserting the HUMANities into computation.

Powerful Movie Moments | 4-week workshop
April 13, April 20, April 27, and May 4 from 7-9 p.m.

All too often, screenplays fall flat because the writer has no idea how to craft powerful movie moments. Movie moments are what you’ll remember years after seeing a film: Tony Curtis racing to meet Marilyn Monroe in the last scenes of Some Like it Hot; the Wicked Witch melting in The Wizard of Oz; the first shark strike in Jaws. If you remember those, then you have an idea of what a great movie moment can do for a film.

The focus of this workshop will be on creating scenes in a script that will make an audience gasp or sob or be dazzled with wonder. Participants may choose to work on one scene from an existing script but the focus will be on developing new scenes through in-class workshops. We will examine several screenplays (provided as attachments) to look at a variety of movie moments that are successful.

Objectives include sharpening your work through learning how to build beats to a movie moment, utilizing visuals as the key aspect of the build, choosing the strongest language in terms of action narrative and dialogue, and taking the greatest advantage of screenplay formatting to craft moments that rise to the most powerful movie moments.


Scholarships are available for those with financial need. Apply here.
