        Subject: Digital Humanities workshops

Next spring, I will teach once again a series of workshops at
GIRES-Global Institute for Research Education & Scholarship, for those
who wish to enter and explore the fascinating world of Digital
Humanities (DH).

This workshop series addresses humanists and social sciences students
or researchers interested in acquiring technical skills directly useful
for their research. Digital humanities offer the possibility to go into
deeper and more efficient interdisciplinary research, as well as it
helps one look at its data from a different angle. Furthermore,
undertaking a DH training helps humanists develop computational thinking
and increases computer literacy – two sets of skills which become more
paramount by the day.

The workshops will be taught both asynchronously and synchronously,
with three envisioned steps:

1. Pre-recorded lectures and tutorials for each topic; their approximate
duration will be 1 hour, generally fragmented in 2-3 parts;
2. Exercises based on these tutorials, which are also to be allocated an
approximate 1-hour duration;
3. On-line, synchronous, meeting, where we will discuss the exercises
and any other connected problems the attendees might raise; their
duration will be 1-2 hours.

The sessions will imply individual exercises, team exercises, as well as
discussions and individual and group feedback. The participants will be
encouraged to use their own datasets, so that the results are both
familiar and relevant, but in case of need we will have sample
spreadsheets to offer them.

Each workshops is a stand-alone, but the participants who would attend
all of them will basically graduate from a complete introduction to DH
