Seeing, Touching and Experiencing Archives: An arts and humanities training day for doctoral students
Tuesday 14 March in the PhD Academy
Hosted by the PhD Academy this one day LAHP event is being held to to mark the entry of the LSE into the consortium. This study day will focus on the Women’s Library Collection at the LSE which is the oldest and most extensive collection of women’s history in Europe, and a key part of the UK’s national heritage.
The particular focus of the day will be on methodological issues around touching, listening to, and seeing artefacts associated with struggles for equality.
The organisers expect the event to be of interest to LAHP students interested in gender, sexuality, political struggle and archival research.
Introduction to Digital Humanities
Full course of 5 sessions
Digital Humanities is an important multidisciplinary field, undertaking research at the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. It aims to produce applications and models that make possible new kinds of research, both in the humanities disciplines and in computer science and its allied technologies. It also studies the impact of these techniques on cultural heritage, memory institutions, libraries, archives, and digital culture. The programme comprises an introductory session followed by 4 x 2-hour classes focusing on specific topics. While the course will introduce a range of digital humanities approaches, and address different types of media, it is primarily focused on working with text.
