Expansive and Inclusive Digital Scholarly Production in the Library

This workshop is designed for people who currently, or may someday, work in Libraries. Over the course of four days, the group will explore and develop approaches to creating and supporting new modes of digital expression in collaboration with library colleagues, with researchers, and with students. Workshop topics will include: Experimental forms of publishing; Scaling new practices (or not); Collections…

Afrofuturism and Augmented Reality

While we have been exposed to depictions of Augmented Reality (AR) through literature, TV and movies for many years, the pervasiveness of mobile platforms and devices have made many of these heretofore futuristic ideas part of our everyday lives. Historically, the future has been presented as an overwhelmingly white, male, place in which difference is minimized and heteronormativity is all…

Creative Coding for Absolute Beginners

Over the course of this week, we’ll explore different dimensions of creative coding, including glitching, bots, procedural remixing, generative storytelling, and games. Students will be exposed to Python, Tracery, Twine, and other platforms for creative coding. No programming experience is required. No experience is in fact preferred. Most programming is goal-oriented, tasked with solving a problem or optimizing a solution.…

Digital Surrogates: Representation, Engagement, and Meaning

This course asks participants to learn about the process of creating digital surrogates with attention to issues of representation, engagement, and meaning. Beginning with the question “What does it mean to digitize an object?”, participants will be asked to consider the responsibilities of a digitization project as it is related to paid and unpaid labor, the ethics of working with…

DH in the Classroom

How do we integrate DH into the classroom in ways that are substantive, critical, and inclusive? How do we navigate the always particular and often messy challenges posed by DH instruction? This course will focus on approaches to juggling curriculum, technology, assessment, and available resources — the how’s and why’s of DH pedagogy — considered as a whole. Each day…

Minimal Computing: Nimble Projects for Shaping and Sharing Histories

Are you interested in publishing a small archive of manuscripts, art, photographs or other primary sources on the web? Have you ever wanted to create and control your own digital collection from start to finish? In this week-long workshop, participants will build their own web projects that catalogue and present digital cultural artifacts using minimal computing principles. In the process,…

Text Analysis

This class will examine methods and practices for text analysis. Freely available tools and excellent tutorials have made it easier to apply computational text analysis techniques, but researchers may still find themselves struggling to build a corpus, decide between methods, and interpret results. We will survey the hows and whys of a variety of commonly used methods, including word counting,…

3D Digital Humanities

Through modern computer graphics, the ViDi Center for Digital Visualization addresses 3D visual experiences, reconstruction, and animation of cultural environments. This session will describe the state-of-the-art in computer visual simulations, especially as they relate to human environments that pose significant and interesting questions for the Humanities. The second half of the session will be devoted to specific case studies in…
