Research Studio Series

DH@CC, in collaboration with The Claremont Colleges Library, is pleased to be organizing the Research Studio Series, a year long program of events (and refreshments!) hosted in the Research Studio, the Library’s hub of DH research and practice. The inaugural Fall 2019 Series consisted of Digital Pop Ups, troubleshooting sessions of the Python Working Group, meetings of the Digital Humanities Reading Group, and How I Made This Workshops

For the Spring 2020 semester, the Research Studio Series will consist of a great line up of regularly scheduled How I Made This Workshops.

How I Made This

Learning about another scholar’s research methods or pedagogical practices can inspire you to think creatively or differently about your own work and teaching. But, in order to integrate new techniques or tools, it’s useful to familiarize yourself with the kinds of technical skills you might need to acquire and the kinds of collaborators you may want to enlist. In these workshops, members of the Claremont community will introduce you to their work in the digital humanities, both long-term research projects and more course and assignment driven initiatives, with an eye towards helping you get a handle on the kinds of resources that you might want to employ in your own teaching and research.

For a list of workshops, please visit the How I Made This page.

Digital Pop-Up

Want to learn a new digital platform? Have a question about a digital project you’ve been brainstorming? Digital Pop Up sessions are the perfect venue to learn and experiment, meet new colleagues and be inspired.

For a list of workshops, please visit the Digital Pop Up page. Although Digital Pop Ups will not be a formal part of the Spring 2020 Research Studio Series, stay tuned for impromptu workshops led by our Digital Research Studio Fellows throughout the semester!

Python Working Group

Whether you are brand new to programming in Python or have a good bit of experience, it’s always useful to get together with other learners and talk through programming challenges. Meetings of the Python Working Group will offer a mix of intro skills along with opportunities for coding “show and share” to solicit feedback on your own projects. We’ll also be collecting and sharing good online sources of Python classes, videos, and tips along the way.

Digital Humanities Reading Group

The Digital Humanities Reading Group (DHRG) first convened in the Fall of 2018 to read and discuss articles, blogs, and books that address the emerging field of DH from various theoretical, practical, and pedagogical perspectives. Our objective is to supplement our understanding of digital humanities by developing an appreciation of the variety of approaches that are encompassed by this broad set of methods. The readings are chosen by group members, so the topics are determined by the various interests that we all bring to the table. 

Although the Digital Humanities Reading Group will not be meeting as part of the Spring 2020 Research Studio Series, they will be tackling Martin Hagglund’s This Life: Secular Faith and Spiritual Freedom in advance of Martin’s visit to Claremont in early March. For more information, please contact Aaron Hodges.
