Subject: Workshop series on DH workshops

Good morning!
I know itís the first day of classes, but could you send this to the PhD and MA listservs? I will also send reminder emails for each workshop as they get closer in time.
Thank you very much,

Do you want to learn a valuable professional skill which could lead to new opportunities?

This Fall semester, RRCHNM is hosting a series of workshops on how to create and run a workshop on a digital tool. Through these workshops, graduate students can learn how to run a workshop on Omeka Classic, Omeka S, Tropy, and digital humanities tools in general. Being able to run a workshop like this is a useful skill to have for anyone interested in teaching, librarianship, museums, the nonprofit sector, and more. There are also regular opportunities to conduct these workshops on campus or through RRCHNM, and we are trying to increase the number of trained workshop givers (these jobs are often paid!)

These workshops are intended for graduate students in the History & Art History department; other graduate students are also welcome to join. In addition to walking through how to conduct a workshop, we will discuss scheduling, organization, and - importantly! - compensation.

Each workshop will be held in the RRCHNM conference room, Research Hall 402, during the colloquium time slot (5:30pm - 7:00pm).

For the tool-specific workshops, there will also be a brown-bag tool demo in the conference room from noon to 1pm; if youíre not familiar with a tool or havenít used it lately, come to the lunchtime session for a refresher before the evening session.

You are welcome to bring food and drink to both sessions, but please be respectful of your fellow participants (no limburger cheese, please).
