Get Started in the Digital Humanities

This January, the Modern Language Association convention is holding a pre-conference workshop on “Getting Started in the Digital Humanities” (http://dhcommons.org/mla2013). Because many interested graduate students are unable to travel to Boston, the FSU Digital Scholars group will host its own version locally, welcoming not only students in English and modern languages, but all humanities graduate students and anyone curious to learn more. Please join us for an accessible panel about different aspects of the digital humanities and what entry-level resources and support communities are available at FSU and beyond. We will begin with perspectives from

  • David Gants, Associate Professor of English (Renaissance literature, History of Text Technologies)
  • Tarez Graban, Assistant Professor of English (digital archives and historiography, feminist rhetorics)
  • Stephen McElroy, PhD Candidate in English (Rhetoric and Composition focus, Digital Studio coordinator, HASTAC Scholar)
  • Micah Vandegrift, Scholarly Communications Librarian (scholarly publishing and open access guru, American studies and MLIS graduate)

An open discussion will follow. All suggestions and recommended resources will be collected, edited, and made available on this site. [Update: report here.] Hope to see you there!
