Digital Humanities workshop: Literacy and Methods
Date / Time
November 21, 2019 - November 21, 2019
9:00 am - 2:30 pm
This inaugural workshop for the Digital Humanities Initiative will work to enhance digital humanities literacy at UIC by focusing on incorporations of digital humanities methods in faculty and student scholarly work and extensions of digital humanities methods into teaching.
The workshop will be facilitated by Northwestern University’s digital humanities specialists Matt Taylor and Josh Honn, who lead Northwestern’s digital humanities collaboration between the University’s Libraries, the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, and the Media and Design Studio of Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.
Matt Taylor is IT Director and Director of the Media and Design Studio at Northwestern University. Matt has a background in computer engineering, but his life passions have always included the study of languages and cultures. Added to this is an opportunity to explore digital humanities, where his interest in the interplay between qualitative and quantitative methods takes shape.
Josh Honn is Digital Humanities Librarian at Northwestern University Library where he consults and collaborates with faculty and students on digital research, teaching, publishing, and scholarship projects in the humanities. He is particularly interested in (digital) culture, pedagogy, archives, curation, ethics, access, poetry, and activism.
