About the Workshop
Northwestern University’s Digital Humanities Summer Faculty Workshop brings together faculty, librarians, and technologists for a two-week intensive and collaborative experience in developing digital humanities pedagogy and research projects with meaningful roles for undergraduate students.
Hosted by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, and co-organized by Northwestern University Library and the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences’ Multimedia Learning Center, the workshop provides Northwestern humanities faculty with the opportunity to learn and grow technology skills; think critically about digital information, tools and culture; conceptualize and collaborate on research and pedagogy projects, and participate in interdisciplinary seminars and discussions.
Faculty in past workshops have gone on to create digital humanities projects in the undergraduate curriculum such as WildWords, a collaborative encyclopedic-dictionary for Northwestern speech communities; Open Door, a digital repository and exhibition space dedicated to the print culture and multimedia archives of multiethnic poetry; Ancient Rome in Chicago, a multimedia walking tour for classical receptions of Chicago architecture; and others.
From 2013-2016, the workshop was made possible by the generous funding of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations. For more information about the workshop, please explore this website, or contact Josh Honn, Digital Humanities Librarian, at [email protected]
