Introduction to the Digital Humanities
Instructor: Natalia Cecire
11AM, 404 Barnard Hall
This brief, partial, and situated introduction will explore the diversity of disciplinary foundations, methodologies, and practices of digital humanities. After an overview, we will look at a number of existing projects and discuss some core issues in digital humanities, including developing standards for evaluation, the role of collaboration, and open access.
Linguistic Analysis with Digital Tools
Instructor: Michelle Moravec
11AM, 18 Lehman
Tools in the digital humanities, each time I write “tool” I think “who is going to write that analysis of phallogocentric language in DH?” However using the master’s tools has been necessary over the past year as I attempted to figure out how to digitally analyze women’s movement periodicals. Based on the interest of the participants, this workshop could explore any combination of four tools, Stéfan Sinclair & Geoffrey Rockwell’s text visualization and analysis suite of tools Voyant Jon Goodwin’s mallet based topic modeling tool that uses Jstor word frequency data, David Newman’s Mallet based topic modeling tool that can be used with any txt file, and Laurence Anthony’s AntConc, a freeware concordancer software program.
Participants will get the most out of this workshop if they have a laptop to play along with me. Down loading tools before hand will also facilitate participation [note voyant requires no downloading].
Introduction to Omeka
Instructor: Megan Wacha
1PM, 18 Lehman
Omeka is a simple system used by scholarly archives, libraries, and museums all over the world to manage and describe digital images, audio files, videos, and texts; to put such digital objects online in a searchable database; and to create attractive web exhibits from them. In this introduction to Omeka, you’ll create your own digital archive of images, audio, video, and texts that meets scholarly metadata standards and creates a search engine-optimized website. We’ll go over the difference between the hosted version of Omeka and the open source server-side version of Omeka, look at examples of Omeka archives and exhibits, and discuss other possible uses.
This workshop is intended for campers that have no previous experience with Omeka.
Video a Go Go

Hands on workshop learning how to use the tools that you ALREADY have (or can buy for under $5.00) to make short videos. Come with footage from the conference and create a collaborative video where EVERYONE gets to contribute footage and make the edits. Bring ideas for a video that you want to create and learn how to take the next step. Work together, alone, with assistance. Just get those videos rolling!
