Rare Books Summer School: Exploring Digital Humanities: A hands-on introduction to data-driven research 

If you cannot pay by credit card online and require an invoice - please contact us by email at conted@vuw.ac.nz


This five-day intensive course will help participants explore digital humanities through theoretical and hands-on seminars. Although the course doesn’t require any prior knowledge, it’s not just for beginners as experienced participants can update their existing skills and profit from working on more challenging tasks in the practical sessions. By partaking in the course, participants will learn the principles and basics of digital humanities and data research. Additionally, participants will deepen their knowledge in specific areas when we explore how to: create your own personal research environment; manage, curate, and enrich data collections; analyse natural language, geospatial data, and social networks; use visualisations to reduce the complexity of data; and make use of linked data, APIs, and microservices for humanities research. All programming languages welcome (but if you don’t yet know one, come anyway and meet a few!).
