Getting Started in Digital History Workshop
For the third year in a row the AHA will be running the Getting Started in Digital History workshop immediately prior to the start of the meeting. Last year brought historians with an interest in using digital tools and resources together with experts in a range of digital-history methodologies. The workshop this year will include both beginner and intermediate hands-on sessions. Planned introductory sessions include good data practices, public and digital history, big data, digital pedagogy, and an introduction to mapping. There will be a more advanced session on mapping and GIS for those that choose the intermediate track, as well as sessions on digital oral history, data visualization, networks, and imaging. We will also have a round-table discussion on debates in the digital humanities after the introductory sessions. Lunch will be provided for all attendees.
Registration for the workshop can be purchased in advance through the registration form for $35, $5 for students. Registration includes a boxed lunch. Please note that you do not need to pick up your badge before attending the pre-meeting workshop. We look forward to seeing you there.
