Kristen Mapes, Assistant Director of Digital Humanities, Michigan State University


During this workshop, participants will learn practical tips for incorporating digital humanities methods and approaches into the classroom. The workshop will provide resources and ideas for in class activities, take home assignments, and final projects. Using Voyant for text analysis and Timeline JS for media-rich timelines, workshop participants will also gain hands on experience with a couple of simple DH tools that are especially suited to a pedagogical context.

What should I do to prepare for this workshop?

  1. Make sure you have a Google account that allows you to create Google Sheets. (This may be a personal account or an institutional one, if your university uses the Google Suite.)
  2. (Optional) Bring in (in digital format, not printed) a piece of writing that you have done (an article, blog post, book chapter, annual report, etc).
