The Teaching and Learning Collaborative will host a brown bag workshop on the possibilities of “Digital Humanities” on Monday, October 30, from noon to 1 p.m., in the library’s Digital Lab. Trina Marmarelli of Reed College and UP’s own Spanish professor Lora Looney will tag team to present both a) an overview of how humanities professors might use digital tools to solve research and teaching problems; b) a specific application of this approach, namely, Looney’s “Spain Remembers” project and portable lessons learned along the way.
While all faculty are invited to this session, those in the humanities are especially encouraged to attend. Bring your lunch and digital device, so you can explore along with the facilitators. Light refreshments will be provided.
