SD|DH-Learning through Digital Humanities: A Showcase

USD's new Humanities Center will host "SD|DH -- Learning through Digital Humanities: A Showcase" in collaboration with USD's Center for Educational Excellence, Academic Technology Services, and Office of Undergraduate Research.This event, which disseminates the work of SD|DH's 2015-16 NEH-sponsored Digital Pedagogy Workshops (Profs. Joanna Brooks and Jessica Pressman, co-PIs), will highlight a variety of innovative DH approaches to pedagogy, students' DH work in classes and in undergraduate research activities, and faculty DH projects that engage students meaningfully in digital research. Sessions will include faculty and student presentations and workshop sessions on key DH tools (like Scalar). Our keynote speaker will be Prof. Alan Christy (UC Santa Cruz), who will discuss his work with students on The Gail Project, a large-scale long-term DH project on post-WWII Okinawa. 

This event is organized by a regional committee representing USD, UCSD, SDSU, CSUSM, and the San Diego Community College District. The SD|DH Showcase is free and open to students, faculty, and the public, and people are welcome to come for all or part of the day.
