The inaugural offering of DH@Guelph Summer Workshops, which aims to become a regular event on the University of Guelph campus, expands opportunities for digital humanities training in southwest Ontario.
The courses will be offered over 4 days, May 19-22.
The first offering is for three courses:
– Developing a Digital Exhibit in Omeka
– Topic Modeling for Humanities Research
– Online Collaborative Scholarship: Principles and Practices (A CWRCshop)
DH@Guelph is part of the DHSI (http://www.dhsi.org/) training network, and these courses are eligible for transfer credit towards the University of Victoria DH Graduate Certificate (http://english.uvic.ca/graduate/digital_humanities.html).
Enriching events include a reception and opening talk by Susan Brown, a keynote talk by Jennifer Roberts-Smith (University of Waterloo) on “Your Mother is Not a Computer: Phenomenologies of the Human for Digital Humanities”, a panel led by Adam Hammond on early career and alt-ac opportunities related to DH, and other opportunities for socializing.
