Digital Brown Bag Lunch Series: What is DH? A Gentle Introduction

Thursday, October 18 – 12:00pm
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
Liz Milewicz and William Shaw

The nature of digital humanities work can be as diverse as the humanities itself, making it difficult to understand what it is, let alone how to incorporate it into one’s scholarly practice. Will Shaw (Digital Humanities Consultant) and Liz Milewicz (Head of Digital Scholarship Services) discuss their own entry into this field, the different approaches and objectives it can encompass, and past and present projects at Duke that demonstrate these qualities. As the first event in the Digital Brown Bag series of campus digital scholarship discussions, their talk will also highlight the range of opportunities available at Duke for building skills and experience in digital humanities work.
