In this first of an inter-working group initiative to familiarize participants with the digital humanities, Allyssa Metzger (G3, History of Science) will coordinate a conversation about what "digital humanities" means in practical terms to grad students. We ask that participants familiarize themselves with the readings attached/linked below, as well as look at DiRT in order to generate conversation about what tools we might collectively workshop in future sessions. Finally, Allyssa will briefly demonstrate some of her projects involving digital Time Tools, and all participants will collaborate in building an interactive TimeMap. Please bring your laptop in order to take part in this activity!
