Interested in the three-day Digital Humanities Bootcamp instead?

A Quick and Useful Guide to Digital Humanities

RESOURCES for the program available here.

This half-day program is designed for Vanderbilt humanities faculty who:

  • Want to develop a more informed opinion about digital humanities scholarship in the academy and in their disciplines
  • Need to advise graduate students about the roles digital scholarship may play in their research, publishing, scholarly communication, teaching, and job markets
  • May have little interest in pursuing new digital methods in their own work

Through discussion and hands-on exploration of digital projects, participants will gain familiarity with key issues, methods, and genres within the emerging area of digital humanities. The program will emphasize critical assessment of digital projects submitted for academic credit and promotion.

The program will take place Monday, August 14, 9:00 am – 12:30 pm in the Vanderbilt Center for Digital Humanities, 344 Buttrick Hall.  Coffee, pastries, and lunch will be provided.

Seats are limited.  Register here.
