Welcome to National Library Week 2017! Check out events happening around CMU this week.
Thanks to everyone who attended the PGH|DH gathering earlier this month! At the meeting, many people expressed an interest in a pan-Pittsburgh Digital Humanities or Digital History reading group. Here it is!
Who: anyone interested in reading analytical articles encompassing the digital humanities, including but not limited to digital history
What: read some stuff of interest to the group members, get together over food or drinks and discuss the readings
When: March 29th, 5pm-6:30pm and repeated on the last Wednesday of every month
Where: the Porch at Schenley. If that doesn’t work well, we will relocate for future meetings.
Our first month’s readings will be:
– The Civilizing Process in London’s Old Bailey by Sara Klingenstein, Tim Hitchcock, and Simon DeDeo: http://www.pnas.org/content/
– Quantitative Analysis of Culture Using Millions of Digitized Books, http://science.sciencemag.org/
Remember to follow along on Twitter with #LYD17 and check out the @CMULibraries data tips.
CMU is hosting its first Pittsburgh Digital Humanities social event in two weeks, on February 2nd, 4:30-6pm in the Hunt Library, Studio B. Meet like-minded researchers, and catch up on what’s going on in our very DH-y city. Inspired by Alison Langmead’s DHRX events, we will have light refreshments (though no alcohol this time — sorry!). Students, faculty, and staff who are already engaged in DH research are welcome to attend.
