Participants sought for faculty seminar on digital studies and methods

The Humanities Center will hold a faculty seminar on digital studies and methods from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 1 to 5.

All Pitt faculty members who employ qualitative and interpretive methods as part of their research strategy are welcome to apply to participate. This seminar has been designed to assist faculty in their efforts to integrate a more mindful use of digital computing into their own research, and also to help them better advise their students about these approaches at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Alison Langmead will serve as the lead facilitator for the week, but other local, digitally focused colleagues also will contribute their knowledge.

To apply to participate, provide a letter of intent that briefly details a current research project and the questions it raises about the ways your work might more productively engage with digital computing and/or digital techniques.
