Proposals are welcome on any topic informing or treating Digital Humanities Pedagogy and Training, including but not limited to: Proposals for Digital Humanities Pedagogy. Paper, panel, and session proposals may be submitted via https: This session will focus on on-campus digital scholarship; DH tools, software, and methodologies; digital mapping; DH for academic administrators; project management; humanities data; and open social scholarship.
The session is structured around an opening talk, two sessions of breakout groups some seminar, some hands on, where participants can sample a handful of relevant DH technologies, concepts, and trendsand group discussion as follows. This session is available to be led on either one or two days.
Please see the list of breakout sessions with abstracts and presenter information below. Breakout Session 1 Breakout Session 2 a repeat, so attendees can engage two topics Wrap-up and Full Group Discussion Anticipated breakout sessions and leaders: This workshop will offer participants an introduction to digital humanities fundamentals, specifically tools and methodologies.
We will explore technologies and platforms that allow scholars of all skills levels to engage with digital humanities methods. Participants will not only be introduced to a variety of tools including mapping, visualization, data analytics, and multimedia digital publication platformsbut also discuss how and why to choose specific applications, platforms, and tools based on project needs.
This workshop is geared towards all academic professionals, graduate students, and undergraduate students, but those new to digital humanities or digital scholarship will likely benefit the most from this survey of tools and methods. Intended for university administrators who seek an understanding of the Digital Humanities that is both broad and deep, this offering discusses pragmatic DH basics and chief administrative issues related to supporting DH and those who practice it at their institution, and engages in consultation and targeted discussion with others in the group.
This workshop will introduce participants to techniques for finding datasets that focus on humanities texts and material, both in repositories and in the wild.
We'll look at the different forms that these datasets might be found in, and what that means for using them. No programming or tech experience required—we won't be looking at anything more advanced than spreadsheets. This workshop will address key concepts and practices in GIS-based spatial humanities projects.
Common challenges integral to digital mapping will be tackled and a number of solutions will be offered by pointing to helpful resources, platforms, and tips that can help resolve some of these issues automatically extracting reusable geo-data from large texts, curating accurate geo-data, visualizing complex data in distinguishable ways, etc.
The most optimal gazetteers for different subject-areas will be discussed, as we as the most suitable platforms for different types of projects. In total, the offering is meant to provide sufficient information for participants to create data and launch their own GIS-based project, and to point to useful resources that can support this endeavor in its various stages.
Libraries have long been spaces for traditional, print-based academic work, including the dissertation. But how are libraries evolving to support or intersect with digital humanities research?
How does the development of the research commons reflect the need for alternative approaches to learning and scholarship in the digital age? Open social scholarship involves creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad audience of specialists and active non-specialists in accessible ways.
In this offering we will consider the role of open knowledge dissemination in academia and at large.
More specifically, we will focus on the history, evolution, forms, and impact of open social scholarship within the domain of scholarly communication. We will survey pertinent research in Open Access OA methods, theory, and implementation, as well as touch on issues related to online journals, repositories, peer review, rights management, advocacy, metrics, and infrastructure.
Project management skills are increasingly in demand for graduate students, early career scholars and those in academic adjacent jobs. This offering will cover the basics of project management from project definition to project review upon completion, including risk assessment and mitigation, work effort modeling, software tools and related internet resources and other topics.
