April 20th – Final Spring DH Working Group

Join us for our final Digital Humanities Working Group of the Spring Semester with Associate Professor of Religious Studies Richard Newton on April 20, 2023, at 10am.

Dr. Newton will give a preview into “Decoding Diaspora: J. A. Rogers’ Mythic Africa” a research project that he’s working on in the RELdl and his REL226: African Diaspora Religions course.

The project brings together a variety of digital elements, including GIS, coding, web design, OCR, metadata protocols, and archiving. In addition to highlighting this work-in-progress, Newton will discuss lessons learned in incorporating undergraduates and graduates in digital research initiatives.
