Introducing the Humanities Data Workshop Series

Update 10/17: Sign up for the second workshop, Finding Humanities Data, to be held on November 3 at noon. You need not have attended the first workshop to join the second one!

We are pleased to announce a new series of events: the Humanities Data Workshop Series!

A purple square features a statue of a person with his hand on his chin, as if thinking. The words "Humanities Data Workshop Series" appear diagonally across the square.

The workshop series will explore what “data” means in the context of humanities scholarship and provide an introduction to key techniques and analytical considerations for data-curious faculty, early-career researchers, graduate students, and library staff.

Over the course of six workshops, participants will learn about the animating methods and questions that go into finding, structuring, cleaning, and preserving data in humanities contexts. Sessions will use case studies from a range of disciplines, and will pay particular attention to the interpretative and ethical decisions involved in creating datasets from objects of humanities research.

The series is a joint venture of the CDH and Princeton Research Data Service. On the CDH side, the series is organized by Perkins Postdoctoral Fellow Sierra Eckert.

Details and Zoom registration for the first two events, on October 6 and November 3, are already available (see the calendar below). Information for future workshops will be added to our events page in the coming weeks. All events start at noon (Eastern time).
