Call For Papers

Dear list members,

Next spring, I will teach once again a series of workshops at GIRES-Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship, for those who wish to enter and explore the fascinating world of Digital Humanities (DH).

This workshop series addresses humanists and social sciences students or researchers interested in acquiring technical skills directly useful for their research. Digital humanities offer the possibility to go into deeper and more efficient interdisciplinary research, as well as it helps one look at its data from a different angle. Furthermore, undertaking a DH training helps humanists develop computational thinking and increases computer literacy – two sets of skills which become more paramount by the day.

The workshops will be taught both asynchronously and synchronously, with three envisioned steps:
1. Pre-recorded lectures and tutorials for each topic; their approximate duration will be 1 hour, generally fragmented in 2-3 parts;
2. Exercises based on these tutorials, which are also to be allocated an approximate 1-hour duration;
3. On-line, synchronous, meeting, where we will discuss the exercises and any other connected problems the attendees might raise; their duration will be 1-2 hours.

The sessions will imply individual exercises, team exercises, as well as discussions and individual and group feedback. The participants will be encouraged to use their own datasets, so that the results are both familiar and relevant, but in case of need we will have sample spreadsheets to offer them.

Each workshops is a stand-alone, but the participants who would attend all of them will basically graduate from a complete introduction to DH course.
