Anti-Racist Feminist Digital Humanities

Taught by Anne Cong-Huyen and Dhanashree Thorat

In the last few years, we have seen a resurgence of minority activisms,
ranging from Black Lives Matter to the Me Too movement, from Standing Rock
to Puerto Rico, even as white supremacist and xenophobic ideologies and
policies have flourished. When silence can be tantamount to complicity,
what is our responsibility as academics and what can digital humanities
offer in this era of renewed political activism?

This course takes a historically grounded approached to apply anti-racist
feminist praxis to digital humanities. Focusing particularly on labor,
infrastructure, methods, and pedagogy, we will interrogate the silences and
gaps in digital humanities as well as work to adopt and embed anti-racist
praxis in our digital humanities work. These are some of our guiding
questions our course will take: What can digital humanities practitioners
learn from past and current liberation movements? How do we build and
support anti-racist feminist movements and networks in our digital
humanities work? How can digital humanities pursue community accountability
and advocacy?

This is an introductory course and we will begin with foundational
scholarship on anti-racist praxis as well as the disciplinary critique of
digital humanities by #transformDH and #DHpoco. No prior coding experience
is needed and readings will be provided. As scholars and librarians with
backgrounds in Asian American studies and community organizing, we center
scholarship and knowledge production from Black, Indigenous, Brown, and
Global South scholars and activists. Each day will combine conversation and
dialogue with hands-on activities. The goal of this course is to enable
participants to reflect on and implement anti-racist praxis in their own
scholarship, methodology, pedagogy, and labor practices. This course will
be taught using Emergent Strategy & Anti-Oppressive Facilitation methods,
practices drawn from community organizing that build care into their

Participants will collaboratively build a guide and bibliography for
anti-racist feminist digital humanities, with the intent of future peer
review and publication.
Critical Digital Curation: Taking Care of Black Women's Material Culture

Taught by Aleia Brown

This course will teach participants an approach to theory and practice of
critical curation and web publishing for material culture that is grounded
in historical inquiry and context. Participants new to digital curation
will learn how to use common tools, while more proficient digital humanist
might learn new methodologies around critical curation and harm reduction.
A survey of Black women's material culture will form the central case study
for the course. Participants will have the opportunity to work with data
sets provided by the instructor that surface how Black women have fashioned
themselves (through adornment), their environments (through utilitarian,
and decorative and fine arts), and their experiences (through in-person and
digital aesthetic choices). While the material culture presents compelling
cause for celebration and appreciation, they also invite us to confront
issues of appropriation, violation of sacred interior spaces, and barriers
into the creative economy. By positioning Black women as makers,
participants will also understand the dynamics of their work and their role
in both historical and contemporary struggles for freedom. Exploration of
the social, cultural, political, and economic implications will help
participants understand how they might ultimately manage data and develop
digital exhibitions of their own. Together, we will explore how our work as
digital humanists can abet or reduce the harms that hitch on to
hypervisibility and erasure of Black women and their creative work.

Participants will learn to employ historical and critical digital curation
practices for any data set. Those with projects in progress are encouraged
to join and share their experiences and concerns to enrich our group
discussions. The lab portion of this course will involve a deep dive into
learning Omeka and Scalar. The lab will also briefly introduce other tools
like Audacity, Etherpad, Storymaps, and Unity that participants can use to
create more dynamic digital collections. Participants will complete the
course with a strong grasp on ethics around image-use, copyright, and
digital stewardship.

Together we will explore the following questions: 
   - What do we gain (or lose) by embracing historical inquiry that explores
   the material and digital worlds?
   - How can we employ methodologies of care while exploring and exhibiting
   very interior and sometimes sacred spaces and histories in public?
   - What processes can we employ that do not aid in the harm that comes with
   Black women's hypervisibility and erasure?
   - What does thoughtful digital curation entail?

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the intensive course, participants will be able to: 
   - Apply the idea of thoughtful digital curation
   - Design a multi-media online exhibition using Omeka and Scalar
   - Understand and apply a methodology around studying and making public
   interior histories

Getting Started with Data, Tools, and Platforms

Taught by Brandon Locke and Catherine DeRose

Starting a digital humanities research project can be quite intimidating.
This course is designed to make that process less so by exploring tools and
platforms that support digital humanities research, analysis, and
publication. We will begin by reframing sources as data that enable digital
research. We will work throughout the week on approaches to (1) finding,
evaluating, and acquiring (2) cleaning and preparing (3) exploring (4)
analyzing (5) communicating and sharing data. Emphasis will be placed
across all stages on how to manage a beginner digital research project in
such a way that helps to ensure that your project remains accessible, that
the process is well documented, and that the data are reusable.

Throughout this course, we will examine several existing projects, and move
through the process of collecting, cleaning, and structuring humanities
data and sources and plugging them into tools and platforms to analyze,
visualize, share, and publish the data and analysis. Exploration of these
stages of project-building will include a technical walk-through, as well
as an examination of the tools and their underlying methodologies.
Introduction to Text Encoding

Taught by Laura Weakly

Introduction to Text Encoding is a beginning level class designed to
familiarize humanities scholars with encoding textual materials according
to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines
(https://tei-c.org/guidelines/). The TEI Guidelines have long been the de
facto international standard for encoding a wide variety of textual
materials from books and manuscripts to magazines, correspondence, and
legal documents.

We will look at current TEI-encoded digital humanities projects including,
but not limited to: the O Say Can You See: Early Washington D.C. Law and
Family Project (http://earlywashingtondc.org/), the Charles Chesnutt
Digital Archive (https://chesnuttarchive.org/), and the Every Week Magazine
Project (http://everyweek.unl.edu/search). We will discuss how the use of
TEI aids in providing access and discoverability.  We will discuss not only
the hows of text encoding - what tags to use and where to use them - but
also the whys  - what aspects of the materials are encoded and how that
encoding will impact scholars and other end users of the materials.

The course also acknowledges that TEI may not be appropriate for all
materials and so it will touch on other approaches that may work better in
those circumstances. Readings will be provided prior to the class for
in-class discussion. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own
source materials if available.
Introduction to Web Development Design and Principles

Taught by Karin Dalziel

This course will provide an overview of web development and design
principles for beginners. You'll receive an introduction to the skills and
tools to publish a project online that will include basic skills like
choosing a domain name, finding a web host, and how to configure your
host. Students will be encouraged to acquire their own server space with
support from instructors, but this is not required.

From there, the course will explore the basics of web development,
including HTML, CSS and Javascript; command line basics; version control
using git; and managing your data and preparing it for publication. We will
also explore publishing platforms, from a full fledged Content Management
System (CMS) to static HTML/minimalist computing methods.

Finally, we'll discuss how to conceptualize your website/project including,
but not limited to: deciding on your site structure, navigation, and
layout; adhering to web standards and accessibility; applying metadata to
your site so it appears well in search results; designing for multiple
platforms; and the basics of visual design.

By the end of this course, students will be capable of publishing a
functional website. Students are encouraged to bring a small sample dataset
or ideas for a publication to assist with this effort. Participants should
bring their own laptop with them or contact the instructor if you cannot.
Latinx Digital Praxis: From theAnalog to the Digital

Taught by Gabriela Baeza Ventura and Carolina Villarroel

Latinx Digital Praxis: From the Archive to the Digital explores analog and
digital methodologies to create scholarship and knowledge around the
experiences of US Latinx peoples. Participants will be introduced to the
process of developing toolkits and resources to explore archival sources of
Latinx peoples while taking into account their historical, cultural and
political context. Participants will be guided through processes involved
in rescuing materials that have been or could fall through the cracks of
the institutional apparatus to ask why and how we can rethink these
processes in order to incorporate these underrepresented communities and
their history within the institutional discourse. We will interrogate the
lived experiences of transnational, exile, native, immigrant peoples which
are crucial at the time of researching, reading, understanding and writing
about them.

Questions that this course will cover include, but are not limited to: 
   - How do we approach US Latinx experience?
   - How do we understand the importance of ethnic materials in the US?
   - How do we approach and incorporate languages other than English into DH?
   - How to identify materials for future projects (research, copyright
   issues, etc.)?
   - How do we create meaningful and respectful data?
   - How do we work with the community owners of the knowledge?
   - How do we create knowledge and scholarship based on these materials?
   - How do we engage our local and immediate communities?

We expect participants will complete this course with knowledge of how to
use digital surrogates to expand access and dissemination of
underrepresented collections, as well as develop  plans for
community-building and partnerships that could help further the mission and
scope of the projects. The course uses an interdisciplinary approach that
at its very base questions archival politics and praxis. Additionally,
participants will learn about strategies necessary to advocate for
programming, grant writing, and faculty and student engagement
(undergraduate and graduate).

No prior technical knowledge is required in this course. Anyone with an
interest in Latinx studies and digital humanities is welcome.

This course is based on the work of the Recovering the US Hispanic Literary
Heritage program located at the University of Houston, one of the premier
research programs for US Latinx scholarship with a trajectory of more than
27 years of locating, preserving, and making available the written legacy
of Latinx in the US since colonial times until 1960.

Spatial Analysis: Theory, Methods, and Applications

Taught by Christy Hyman

This course asks how can we use maps to reveal spaces of possibility for
human potential? How can spatial analysis interrogate geographies in ways
that highlight the human elements of agency and powers? Why and how is
critical GIS essential in an era of environmental crisis?

This course combines theory, methods, and applications geared towards
helping participants develop an understanding of critical spatial data
analysis. Mapping encompasses a range of activities that give users the
ability to create locational reference to places on a map. In this course
we dig deeper to explore how place referencing fits in the range of
services offered in a GIS system with a critical lens. This course provides
participants with practical experience of geoprocessing analytics such as
georectification, overlay analysis, and spatial data extraction. These
techniques will be applied to a variety of social and environmental issues
using both ArcGIS and QGIS, two popular spatial tools. The instructor will
provide the datasets necessary for the course. Prior to class, participants
will need to have QGIS installed on their laptops. This course is designed
for anyone with an interest in mapping or GIS broadly
Teaching DH: Assignment, Syllabi, Curricula

Taught by Brandon Walsh and Kristen Mapes

From individual course assignments to full syllabi, informal training to
structuring of degree programs, digital humanists are frequently asked to
teach their students and collaborators new methods for digital research in
a variety of different situations.. This course focuses on digital
humanities instruction activity at several scales: individual assignments,
semester-long courses, and full programs. While the conversation will be
geared primarily to sustained, long-term instruction typical of
credit-bearing courses, the activities and discussions will be relevant for
a range of different teaching contexts.

Participants will work together to consider how their individual teaching
values and philosophies shape their digital and analog pedagogy. We will
focus on tangible expressions of digital humanities pedagogy: - Digital humanities teaching philosophy statements;
   - DH course assignments;
   - Syllabus frameworks;
   - Curricula for a DH program (minor, certificate, etc).

Participants will discuss theoretical approaches to each genre, critique
examples, and spend time collaboratively workshopping draft components for
their own use.

This course is open to instructors looking to integrate digital humanities
into teaching. Students interested in digital humanities pedagogy are
especially encouraged to enroll in the course. It may also be relevant to
administrators or others charged with developing digital humanities
curricula at their institution. While not a prerequisite, some experience
in teaching will be helpful for participants taking this course. Please
feel free to write if you have concerns about your background or ability to
participate in the course - we are happy to discuss it with you.

Text Analysis Methods & Practice

Taught by Katie Rawson

This class will examine methods and practices for text analysis. Freely
available tools and excellent tutorials have made it easier to apply
computational text analysis techniques; however, researchers may still find
themselves struggling with how to build their corpus, decide upon a method,
and interpret results. We will survey the how and why of variety of
commonly used methods (e.g. word distribution, machine learning, natural
language processing) as well as how develop and manage a collection of

Students who take this course will be able to: 
   - Find and prepare texts for analysis.
   - Store, access, and document their text objects and data.
   - Discuss their corpus-building decisions and textual data in ways that
   are methodologically and disciplinarily sound.
   - Identify appropriate text analysis methods for a given question.
   - Engage in text analysis methods that use word frequency, word location,
   and natural language processing.
   - Articulate statistical, computational, and linguistic principles - and
   how they intersect with humanistic approaches to texts - for a few text
   analysis methods.

We will use a mixture of free off-the-shelf tools and scripts in R and
Python (you don't need to know R or Python to take the class). We will
primarily work together from shared data sets the instructor will provide.
This course will be appropriate for people at all levels of technical
expertise. Students should have administrative rights to load software on
their laptop.

Applications are invited for participation in a series of advanced institutes on
text analysis, sponsored by the Northeastern University Women Writers Project
with generous funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. These
events introduce teachers and researchers at varied levels of expertise to the
text analysis methods and interpretive questions arising from word embedding
models, which represent connections between words as computable spatial
relationships. These institutes explore practical techniques and also
interpretive outcomes, working with simple, open-access web tools hosted in the
Women Writers Project Lab.

This program includes four institutes, of which one has already taken place in
July 2019 [https://wwp.northeastern.edu/outreach/seminars/wem_2019-07/]. The
remaining events are:

  1.  An introductory institute focused on pedagogical uses of word vectors,
using the WWP's web-based Women Writers Vector Toolkit (May 20-22, 2020)
  2.  An intensive institute focused on research uses of word vectors, offering
a thorough, well-scaffolded introduction to RStudio through commented code
samples that can be adapted for use in participants' own work (July 15-17,
  3.  An intensive institute focused on pedagogical uses of word vectors,
including coverage of RStudio and the challenges of teaching command-line tools
in a humanities context (July 2021)

Both the introductory and intensive events are intended to stand on their own,
although participants are welcome to attend both, space permitting. Each event
is followed by a period of virtual discussion, consultation, and support.
Participants will share research and teaching outcomes including syllabi,
assignments, blog posts, and research papers.

Each institute begins with a three-day in-person event, followed by a three-
month period of virtual discussion and consultation with WWP staff and fellow
participants to ensure that these challenging concepts and techniques can be
thoroughly internalized. Participants will be encouraged to share research and
teaching outcomes (syllabi, assignments, blog posts, research papers) and will
be given the opportunity to post preliminary results and work in progress on the
WWP blog.

Travel funding is available of up to $500 per participant.

We're now inviting applications for the second and third events. For

        From: Aline Deicke 
        Subject: CfP: Historical Network Research Conference (HNR2020), June 17-19, Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg)

The Historical Network Research community is very pleased to announce the call
for papers for the next Historical Network Research conference which will take
place at the University of Luxembourg, from Wednesday 17 until Friday 19 June
2020. The conference will run over three days opening with a workshop day and
two conference days.

Social network analysis theories and methods have emerged as a persuasive
extension of purely metaphorical uses of network concepts in historical
research. The HNR conference series explores the challenges and possibilities of
network research in historical scholarship and serves as a platform for
researchers from various disciplines to meet, present and discuss their latest
research findings and to demonstrate tools and projects.

The Historical Network Research community has its roots in the year 2009 when
the first in a series of workshops on the application of network analysis in the
historical disciplines took place. In 2019, the thirteenth workshop on
"Networks Across Time and Space: Methodological Challenges and Theoretical
Concerns of Network Research in the Humanities" (https://nats.hypotheses.org/)
was hosted by the Academy of Sciences and Literature in Mainz, Germany. In 2013,
the European Digital Humanities research network Nedimah enabled us to organize
the first international conference on Historical Network Research in Hamburg.
This was followed by conferences in Ghent 2014, Lisbon 2015, Turku 2017, and
Brno 2018. From 2013 onwards, we organised sessions on historical networks at
the International Sunbelt Conferences of the International Network for Social
Network Analysis (INSNA), and from 2014 on at the corresponding European
Regional Conferences (EUSN). The year 2017 saw the publication of the inaugural
issue of the Open Access Journal of Historical Network Research
(www.jhnr.uni.lu). JHNR is devoted to the study of
networks (social or otherwise) from a specifically historical perspective and
encourages the exchange between different areas of historical research (in the
broadest sense), the (digital) humanities at large as well as the social,
information and computer sciences. These events and activities are supplemented
by the website Historical Network Research (www.historicalnetworkresearch.org),
which provides a bibliography, a calendar of events and an email newsletter.

For our 2020 conference, we welcome submissions for individual contributions
discussing any historical period and geographical area. Authors may be
historians, linguists, librarians, archaeologists, art historians, computer
scientists, social scientists as well as scholars from other disciplines working
with historical or archaeological data. Topics may include, but are not limited

  *   Cultural and intellectual networks
  *   Geospatial networks
  *   Citizen science, crowdsourcing and other forms of public engagement
  *   Networks extracted from texts
  *   Networks and prosopography
  *   Methodological contributions with immediate relevance for Historical
Network Research such as missing data, temporality, multilayer networks,
ontologies, linked data
  *   Pedagogy, teaching, and digital literacy in Historical Network Research


The closing keynote will be delivered by Petter Holme,
Specially Appointed Professor at the Institute of Innovative Research at the
Tokyo Institute of Technology, the speaker for the opening keynote will be
announced in the near future.


Participants are invited to take part in one or two of three half-day-workshops:

  *   Introduction to Social Network Analysis (Matthias Bixler, Independent
