About this series

Doing DH is a monthly series of presentations and workshops focusing on skills needed for working in the digital humanities. Lightning-talk presentations, followed by audience and panel discussion, showcase people, projects, and expertise in the Research Triangle and offer insights into the practical side of being a digital humanist. Workshops provide hands-on introduction to tools used by digital humanists. 

All Doing DH events are held on the campus of Duke University (Durham, NC) and open to faculty, staff, and students at all Research Triangle institutions. Workshops are co-sponsored by the Wired! Group.
