Teaching with the Perseids Platform: Tools and methods

ALL WELCOME

The Perseids online collaborative environment offers a new pedagogical 
model for Classics in which students participate directly in the 
creation of knowledge. This presentation will detail two uses cases of 
Perseids. The first use case, in which a class collaborates to edit, 
translate, and annotate documents offers students an occasion to step 
out of the traditional Classical canon to process materials such as 
manuscripts and inscriptions. The second use case, dynamic syllabi using 
managed resources, lets professors assign texts for students to read and 
annotate, design tests, and gather data for student evaluation. This use 
case will be demonstrated for a language class and a Classical Mythology 
course.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

        Subject: Now Accepting Application: Digital Humanities Data Curation Institute (Oct. 16-18 @ MITH)


Digital Humanities Data Curation, a series of three-day workshops, will provide a strong introductory grounding in data curation concepts and practices, focusing on the special issues and challenges of data curation in the humanities. Workshops are aimed at humanities researchers — whether traditional faculty or alternative (alt-ac) professionals — as well as librarians, archivists, cultural heritage specialists, other information professionals, and advanced graduate students.

Applications are now being accepted for the second Digital Humanities Data Curation Institute workshop, to be held at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, University of Maryland, October 16-18, 2013. Visit the Institute website (http://dhcuration.org/institute) to complete an application by August 7.

As the materials and analytical practices of humanities research become increasingly digital, the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of information science, librarianship, and archival science — which come together in the research, and practice of data curation — will become more vital to humanists.

Carrying out computational research with digital materials requires that both scholars and information professionals understand how to manage and curate data over its entire lifetime of interest. At the least, individual scholars must be able to document their data curation strategies and evaluate those of collaborators and other purveyors of humanities data. More fully integrating data curation into digital research involves fluency with topics such as disciplinary research cultures, publication, information sharing, and reward practices, descriptive standards, metadata formats, and the technical characteristics of digital data.

Organized by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), the Women Writers Project (WWP) at Brown University, and the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS) at GSLIS, this workshop series is generously funded by an Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
