PhD+ : Gateway to Digital Humanities – an Introduction to Digital Methodologies & Resources at UCSC
November 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Stevenson Fireside Lounge | Free
This co-led event provides students with first-hand experience working in DH, resources to continue building upon this project, and a larger discussion regarding the possibilities for individual and collaborative digital research. Rachel Deblinger will open with a 45 minute hands-on workshop, introducing the process of building a dataset and visualizing data as an analytical method. She will also share the resources available through the Digital Scholarship Commons (DSC) and discuss the range of digital skills sought on the academic job market. Following this workshop and discussion, Zac Zimmer will talk about his personal experience with DH communities as well as the need to engage with digital concerns in traditional scholarly pursuits. Together, they present DH not as a set of tools or skills, but as a way of learning about and developing a critical vocabulary for a understanding the contemporary digital world. This includes the network interfaces we use daily, the tools we employ to collect and organize research materials, etc. For this session, advance registration (below) will be required.
