Are you able to attend the first workshop,"What are the Digital Humanities, and Why Should I Care?" on Friday, September 9th from 10 a.m - 12 p.m.?
This workshop will introduce participants to the values and practices associated with Digital Humanities that shape various types of DH projects including knowledge sites, digital editions, datamining, GIS, 3D modelling. We’ll look at the critical choices behind several projects and explore the criteria for evaluating them in academic and public contexts.
Are you able to attend the second workshop, "Data Wrangling I: Exploring Programming in the Digital Humanities," on Friday, September 16th, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.?
Everyone has data — even people working in the humanities — and that data can take many different forms. This workshop is designed to help you figure out what sort of data you have, and what sorts of tools it is compatible with. We’ll look at the different types of tasks that several DH tools and programming languages can accomplish. Knowing what sort of data you have (or could create) will allow you to figure out what DH tools you might need to learn more about for your research.
Are you able to attend the third workshop, "Data Wrangling II: Programming on the Whiteboard," on Friday, September 23rd, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.?
This course builds on the previous workshop. Understanding what sort of data you have is the first step, but the second step is being able to articulate your research question(s) in the form of specific computing tasks. This practice is called writing pseudo-code. We’ll also continue learning more about the different ways that programming is used in DH projects. The goal of the Data Wrangling workshops is not to teach you to program, but instead to allow you to more effectively plan technical development, and prepare you to have more productive discussions with more skilled programmers and technologists.
Have you worked with digital humanities previously? If so, please briefly describe your experience.
(Note: no prior experience with digital humanities is necessary; this question simply helps shape the workshop content.)
