Digital Humanities Summer Seminar: Working with Text and Data

This year’s DH Summer Seminar offered faculty the opportunity to learn about and see examples of digital tools and programs for use in their courses. The first day was dedicated to tools that facilitate working with text and the second day was dedicated to tools that facilitate working with data. Day three provided an opportunity for interested SHU faculty to work with a TLTC representative to discuss their course and project ideas. This event was free of charge open to members of the New Jersey Digital Humanities Consortium. Several of the presentations are available below as PowerPoints. All presentations were also audio recorded and will soon be available.
