Digital Humanities - Workshops
Data cleaning is a common preparatory step in working with data, where researchers dealing with messy or incomplete datasets aim to give it more uniformity and structure. Messy data includes issues such as duplicate records, empty values and inconsistent spelling or formatting. If left unaddressed these can lead to problems in subsequent data analysis, visualisation or any research output.
OpenRefine helps you quickly diagnose the quality of your data and take iterative steps to ensure it is clean and well structured.
This workshop will next take place on Thursday, November 3.
Data mapping has potential for application far beyond study of Geography. This workshop is aimed at humanities researchers interested in spatial data and using maps to tell stories. With ArcGIS we will show how to create a map from raw data and how to build contextual narrative around your map using the Storymaps feature.
This hands-on workshop provides a low-barrier introduction to Github and Git to help you understand their potential value for digital research projects. Git is version control software for tracking project files, backing up data, and collaborating with others. We also look at Github Pages as a potential home for your research project website or blog.
This workshop will next take place in March 2023.
This workshop will guide attendees through the process of creating a digital exhibition or scholarly project in Omeka. It will also introduce aspects of digital storytelling, content management and webhosting.
This workshop will next take place in February 2023.
This is an introduction to IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework), a modern method of presenting high quality images from digitised cultural heritage collections in a way that enables new forms of engagement and reuse.
It is aimed at all researchers and staff interested in learning new ways to access and use digital collections.
This workshop will next take place in April 2023.
These workshops are typically framed at introductory level and as group sessions but if you have other requirements we are happy to discuss.
Currently scheduled sessions are noted in the descriptions above. Where possible we also provide these in response to demand so if one you would like to attend is without a current scheduled date please let us know (liam.odwyer[at]dcu.ie).
We would love to hear about any current activities or interests you or your School have relating to Digital Humanities.
