DigiLab

The DigiLab is an instruction space as well as an incubator and publicity hub for nationally recognized digital humanities projects. Opened in 2015, it is outfitted with flexible workspaces for individual or collaborative projects and with advanced technological resources. The DigiLab is located on the third floor of the Main Library, across from the newly renovated Reading Room and adjacent to the University of Georgia Press.

 

Katie Ireland is the DigiLab Outreach Coordinator. She holds a Ph.D. in Linguistics from UGA. She is the main contact for the Digital Humanities Undergraduate Certificate and any outreach programming.

Her research is focused on using digital tools in text analysis, corpus linguistics, and language variation. She works with all modes of text data, from traditional corpora to her datasets of Twitter text she captured herself.

 

Keiko Bridwell is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Linguistics. She works as a research assistant at theĀ DigiLab, where she leads workshops on various digital tools and is available for consultation about digital projects, and is teaching a course on text analysis in Spring 2022 (DIGI 3000). Keiko’s research in linguistics focuses on sociophonetic variation.

The DigiLab is a multi-use space and is open to all UGA faculty and students when not reserved for a class. Check the calendar for events and room availability.
