Session 1: An Introduction to Digital Humanities Research
Clark University facilitators:
Eduard Arriaga-Arango, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Language, Literature, and Culture
Matt Malsky, Ph.D.
Professor of Music and Director, Higgins School of Humanities
In this first session of the Digital Research in the Arts & Humanities workshop series, we will introduce digital humanities (DH) as both a field of research and a practice through a working definition, project examples, and a hands-on primer to some basic computing skills used in the DH (bring your laptop). We will work together to share the kinds of knowledge, data, methods, and research questions we encounter in our own disciplines, and to cultivate a community of practice and practitioners in the digital humanities. This workshop sets the stage for the future events in the series.
This session does not assume any prior knowledge of digital humanities work and is suitable for all skill levels. Admission is free and open to faculty, staff, and graduate students from the Clark University community and beyond. The workshop is limited to 30 participants and will be conducted in person. Registrants should bring a fully charged computer and a brown bag lunch if desired.
