Do you work with Digital Humanities? Do you want to incorporate DH techniques into your research or teaching, but don’t know where to start? Would you like new ways to study topics within Humanities and Social Sciences?

You are invited to learn more about Gale’s revolutionary Digital Scholar Lab – a first of its kind online environment for text and data mining featuring Gale’s primary source archives, integrated with powerful analysis tools. Chris Houghton and Tom English from Gale Cengage will show how you can take the University’s existing digital archives (in the Gale family e.g. Eighteenth Century Collections Online or Times Digital Archive) and explore them in completely new ways, quickly creating bespoke content sets that can be cleaned, exported or analysed.

Please drop-in to the Library’s Digital Reading Room between 12 noon and 2pm on Wednesday 27 March to find out more – there will also be a chance to have a go at Digital Humanities yourself in using nearby computers in the Law School.
