Digital humanities education is often premised on the assumption that these students require at least of semester of training before they are ready to use Text and Data Mining (TDM) tools in their studies. The aim of this project is to introduce TDM into existing units across the humanities and social sciences through the construction of one-week teaching modules aimed at students who have had no prior exposure to the digital humanities or data science. Project team members, pooling together their expertise in the fields of data science, eLearning, history, and library science, introduced students to topic modelling, network analysis, and geographic analysis as tools for analysing trends in historical newspapers reporting on events in the histories of human rights and genocide. Marco Duranti is Senior Lecturer in Modern European and International History at the University of Sydney. Among his recent publications is /The Conservative Human Rights Revolution: European Identity, Transnational Politics, and the Origins of the European Convention /(Oxford UP, 2017). Marco's interest in the digital humanities stems from his involvement in an ongoing collaboration with ProQuest aimed at teaching literacy in Text and Data Mining (TDM) to undergraduates in the University of Sydney Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. With support from DVC-Education, FASS, and the Library, he worked with an interdisciplinary team to develop online TDM tools for the study of human rights and genocide in historical perspective. Team members included experts from the fields of data science (John Dillon, Chao Sun), eLearning (Bec Plumbe, Brian Bailey), and library science (Gene Melzack, Jennifer Stanton, and Ryan Stoker). Ryan Stoker is a Research Data Officer based at Fisher Library. He has been with the University since 2017, providing advice to researchers on data management practices and, more recently, exploring support services for researchers in the digital humanities. Ryan has been assisting Marco with technical and subject support on Text and Data Mining and using the ProQuest TDM Toolkit for teaching and learning. Date: Thursday, 23 May 2019 Time: 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. Location: Kevin Lee Room Level 6, Lobby H Quadrangle Free and open to all -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-05-16 23:03:17+00:00 From: Katherine Harris Subject: Women and Gender Minorities in Digital Humanities Collegium, May 29-31, Stanford U Women and Gender Minorities in Digital Humanities Collegium Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis Stanford University May 29, 2019 - May 31, 2019 *See details below for exact dates and times.* Stanford Text Technologies, with Stanford University Libraries, is delighted to announce the upcoming Collegium--"Women and Gender Minorities in Digital Humanities" on May 29th to 31st. Our speakers include Deb Verhoeven (our keynote speaker), Miriam Posner, Isabel Galina Russell, Ann Cong-Huyen, Jacqueline Wernimont, Alice Staveley, Giovanna Ceserani, Pip Willcox, Alessandra Celati, Rita Lucarelli, Marisa Parham, Mar Hicks, Laura McGrath. Quinn Dombrowski will host a mentorship and strategy workshop. For futher details, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome all participants for the conference day and workshop. "Women and Gender Minorities in Digital Humanities" highlights and celebrates the significant scholarly contributions of women and gender minorities in interdisciplinary Digital and Computational Humanities, while serving as a forum to propose, and advocate for, cultural changes to support all women and gender minorities in making their own impactful contributions to DH. Our main questions for the collegium, which we'll discuss in papers, Q&A, and our workshop are: how might our understanding of women in DH be enhanced by taking a more deliberate set of perspectives? What kinds of projects are women and gender minorities developing and directing? What women and gender minorities are *themselves* the focus and subjects of researchers' attentions? What fresh light is cast upon the "canon", our methods and approaches, by considering the work of scholars who are often overlooked, uncited, and marginalized by the dominant discourses? In what ways can women and gender minorities benefit from the social and intellectual connections to be made through conversation and scholarly exchange? This is the fifth Text Technologies Collegium at Stanford, and, this year, it is co-hosted with CIDR. A keynote on the 29th May by Professor Deb Verhoeven will be followed by a day of papers and a closing response on the 30th. A workshop and action plan on the morning of the 31st May will be accompanied by posters showing CESTA students' scholarship in DH. We hope this format can encourage cogency to proceedings, as well as the opportunity for collective inquiry, collegial support, knowledge exchange, and the generation of ideas. The conference is designed to hear from a range of speakers who practice diverse methods and have a variety of foci, and the workshop will help women and gender minorities strategize and find support among peers and mentors.
