Canceled: Using Computers for Scholarly Research

This event has been canceled.


This introductory workshop is targeted towards scholars, practitioners, and researchers who are interested in using data analysis and digital humanities tools in projects for research, teaching, and service. This workshop provides more basics about how these tools work in general, allowing you to consider if new tools are right for your research process.

After this workshop, learners should be able to:

  • Explain what a computer program does
  • See commonalities in programs such as run, stop, and exit commands/buttons and menu items
  • Understand how to make experimenting with a new computer program safe for their files

This workshop is for complete beginners and does not require bringing a computer; we will go over concepts in group discussions.


This workshop will be offered in person. This workshop is typically offered once per semester and can also be scheduled on request.  Next semester, we will offer it as the opposite format (Zoom). Automatic captioning will be provided via Zoom. The curriculum is freely available online at: https://osf.io/b9sf6/ . We have no scheduled breaks during this one-hour workshop.  Gendered/family restrooms are available on the same floor. Food and drinks are not provided but Bizzell Memorial Library has a coffee shop on LL1 (hours may vary) and vending machines on LL1, in the hall east of LL118 (the community room).  Water fountains are available on all floors. For additional accommodations on the basis of disability, please contact the workshop instructor or .

Registration is recommended.
