While these talks and tutorials will pay special attention to the needs and interests of Area Studies, we believe the subject matter will be applicable to any scholar interested in emerging digital methods for humanistic-oriented research.
Please RSVP if you will be joining us for ANY PART of the day as we need a head count to plan properly. PLEASE be sure to complete all fields on the invitation. These will let us know which topics you are most interested in discussing and learning more about, if you will be eating breakfast and/or lunch with us and if you have any dietary restrictions (so we know how much and what kind of food to order).
