Omeka at CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative – tomorrow (Wednesday 2/9)

  • Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to make sure you know that Cynthia Tobar, from this group, will be talking with the CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative tomorrow evening about Omeka and the Mina Rees Library – and, humanists or not, you’re very welcome to join us! Here’s the announcement:

    The CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative (CUNY DHI) will be holding its first meeting of the Spring semester on Wednesday, February 9th, from 6:30pm-8:30pm in Room 8301 at CUNY Graduate Center.

    Our theme for this semester is “DIY DH.” In this spirit, group members have volunteered to share their experiences using digital technologies in their classrooms and research. On the agenda: using off-the-shelf tools in Macaulay Honors College seminars, WordPress plugins for the paperless and networked classroom, Omeka and the Mina Rees library, and reports from recent THATCamps and the MLA Convention.

    It should be a lively and informative session, with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. We hope you can join us.

    About CUNY DHI:
    The group, based on the CUNY Academic Commons, was launched in Fall 2010, and aims to bring together those at CUNY who are applying digital technologies to scholarship and pedagogy in the humanities. All are welcome: faculty, students, and technologists, experienced practitioners and beginning DHers, enthusiasts and skeptics.
