The Digital and Computational Studies Initiative is pleased to invite all interested Bowdoin faculty to an intensive introduction to Digital Humanities, led by Professors Eric Chown and Pamela Fletcher. The workshop is aimed at introducing faculty to the core concepts and resources necessary to incorporate digital humanities projects into their teaching, and to orient them to digital tools available for research. The program will include discussion of basic digital and computational principles, including very basic programming; an overview of the conceptual and practical field of digital humanities, including discussion of core texts and representative digital projects; hands-on experience with specific tools; and the opportunity for individual consultations.

Day 1: Introduction to Digital Humanities, Computation and Programming
Day 2: Text Analysis
Day 3: Spatial Analysis
Day 4: Network Analysis

We ask that participants commit to attending the first day and at least one of the special topic days. For the best overview of the field, its tools, and methods, we recommend attending all four days.
