Are you curious about digital scholarship or digital humanities, but aren’t sure where to start? Don’t know where to find data or how to organize it? Digital scholarship can be defined very broadly as scholarship presented in digital form(s), enabled by digital methods and tools, and/or about digital technology and culture. In this workshop, we’ll provide an overview of digital humanities/digital scholarship as a field and a community, give examples of scholarly projects, and discuss different digital tools and methods such as text and data mining, topic modeling, data visualization, network analysis, and digital publishing. We’ll evaluate these methods with an eye toward context and consider when and why they might or might not be used.
