Public Digital Humanities: Building an Audience for Data


Mar 06 12:00 – 1:20 pm
Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B

What is the public digital humanities and why is everyone talking about it? How does the use of data expand the range of possible audiences (and partners) for current research in the humanities?

This workshop will provide a brief survey of the kinds of projects undertaken by practitioners in the public digital humanities today. We will explore common strategies for making our scholarship not just accessible but useful for a range of campus & community audiences.

Depending on participant interest, we may focus on resources for social media, podcasts, online exhibits, crowdsourcing, or more. Participants will develop new ideas for digital projects to share research with public audiences.
