Teaching Modeling and Simulation in the Humanities

CMAC has been using its simulation tools to advance research in a number of disciplines, many of which are based in the sciences, whether that’s in the natural sciences like neuroscience or in the social sciences like policymaking. CMAC’s work in the Institute for the Bio-Cultural Study of Religion has long combined traditionally scientific approaches with the study of theology, and found modeling to be an essential tool in answering big questions in an innovative way. To extend that potential further, CMAC is currently examining how the transformative methods of modeling and simulation can be made available to scholars in humanities disciplines, from literature to history. Years Active: 2016–Present.
