DH Reading Groups

DH Working Group

For Graduate Students and Early Career Scholars

The DH Working Group is a small group dedicated to building an interdisciplinary DH community among graduate student or early-career humanists who use computational methods (or computer scientists who ask humanist questions). We will read scholarship in DH together and read each other’s conference talks, chapters, or articles in order to provide peer feedback. Readings are required to participate in the community, but sharing writing is voluntary. We hope this professional community outlasts the run of this group.

  • What will we do? Read & discuss a DH scholarship; read & discuss each other’s writing.
  • Meets twice monthly, alternating Wednesdays 2:30-3:30, Aug- Dec
  • Contact Elliott Kuecker to join.

Critical DH Faculty Learning Community

For Faculty at any level, sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning

Digital Humanities has intersections in research methodologies, data ethics, computational strategies, computer science, and philosophy. Many faculty are interested in integrating it into their own research, or want support assisting their undergraduates and graduates with DH methods. This group will be a space for open discussion and practical advice. Given that DH practitioners are already a small subset of the humanities, supportive groups like this have tremendous positive effects. We welcome dabblers and experts– no coding nor experience necessary. 

  • Engage in critical discussions about DH methods
  • Share pedagogical techniques for incorporating DH methods into the classroom
  • Discuss personal project research
  • Define research questions using data
  • Discuss data ethics relevant to the humanities
  • Apply with CTL to join
  • FLC reading list and goals
