Hope you had a restful weekend. For our Monday Edition this week, we wanted to discuss an EXTRAORDINARY upcoming DH opportunity taking place here on the UO campus October 30th, 2-4 p.m. in McKenzie 375. The theme of this event: “Scared No More”!
Does the prospect of “writing code” terrify you? Do you experience feelings of horror at the prospect of a computing workshop? Do you wish you had somewhere to go to discuss DH more informally–someplace where code writers fear to tread?
Just in time for Halloween, we bring you the first DH working group meeting! This informal meeting will take place a few times each term to bring together those interested in learning about digital tools, digital pedagogy, and the wide range of tools and practices that fall under the category “digital humanities.” There will be no code writing at the meeting. Instead we’ll offer light refreshments and an engaging group of colleagues.
If you have an idea for a project–even if that’s all you have–we want to hear it. Please join us!
Our guest speakers will delight you with some ideas they’ve had about how to incorporate DH into scholarship and teaching.
Dr. Tara Fickle, Assistant Professor of English
Dr. Lisa Wolverton, Professor of History
Dr. Naomi Zack, Professor of Philosophy
So come one and all, we look forward to seeing you on October 30th!
