What is CHASS?
CHASS refers to the application of computational and data-science tools within the humanities, arts, and social sciences. The toolkit – computing and data sciences – is powerful and surprisingly adaptable. The application domains – humanities, arts, social sciences, including public health – are vital for human self-understanding, self-expression, and self-enhancement. The dialogue across disciplines that arises within CHASS is priceless for building a vital university community arcing across the chasms between distant departments, and for demonstrating the irreplaceable value of every participating discipline.
This website supports what Boston University is already doing in CHASS and encourages networking and information sharing that can open up new research and teaching possibilities.
