Digital Humanities Summer Seminar

Digital Humanities
SUMMER SEMINAR
May 24, 25, and 26
12:30 – 3:30
ITV Room, Walsh Library

Whether you are an experienced user of digital tools and techniques, or you’re just beginning to incorporate them into your teaching and scholarship, the DH Summer Seminar will provide an array of tools, tips, and project ideas to stimulate you, as well as an opportunity to try them out and apply for a DH seed grant.

We will start with lunch each day at 12:30; the program will begin at 1:00.

Each day will conclude with a Q&A session/discussion.

At the end of the seminar, faculty members who attend at least one full day may apply for one of four $500 “seed” grants for a DH project they plan to develop over the summer for use in their teaching and/or scholarship. The project does not have to include a tool demonstrated at the seminar. Applications will be available at the seminar’s conclusion.
