RUG — R User’s Group

R User’s Group (i.e., RUG) is a place for newbies and experts alike to learn and work together on projects using the statistical programming language, R. Do you want to learn the best practices for creating a reproducible workflow but don’t know where to begin? Struggling to figure out the best methods for wrangling a messy data set? Want to build a clean and professional website using free and open-source tools? We can do all this and more using R! Join us as we learn how to unlock the full potential of the R ecosystem.

    Tools for the Digital Humanities Workshop
    September 17th, 2021 (Fri) 1:00-2:00pm

    Join us to see the possibilities for doing Digital Humanities work and learn about DH tools, methods, and projects!

    With the remarkable array of digital tools available, it can be difficult to determine which ones you’ll really need, particularly when you\’re in the research stage. Perhaps you only vaguely understand what \”digital humanities\” is. This workshop will give an overview of digital humanities methods and introduce a variety of tools for different kinds of research. We’ll discuss the genres and vocabulary of DH from text analysis to geospatial mapping and review the many available resources online and at The Graduate Center. Feel free to come with your project ideas and questions.

    This event will be held online. The video link will be distributed to those who register. Please use your CUNY Graduate Center email address when registering. REGISTER HERE.

    We\’re looking forward to seeing you at one of these events!
