The Fordham Graduate Student Digital Humanities Group had a great inaugural year, one that ended on a high note with our guest speaker, Matt Gold. To see all the things we did, go to the Past Events page. Read about Mary Anne Myer‘s experiences with this group’s activities and beyond. For 2013-14, we will build on our activities by offering more of the same, including discussions and workshops to help teachers and students use technology in teaching and research, as well as nationally-recognized speakers. We also plan to add a few things, such as supporting those who wish to learn to code and hackathons.
In September, Patrick Burns will lead a discussion of Matthew Jocker’s book, Macroanalysis. This discussion will be accompanied by a month-long tutorial on topic modeling, designed by Patrick. (Read more about topic modeling here.) Check here for more information about that and follow us on Facebook. We constantly add updates about the group as well as other interesting things about the digital humanities in general.
