About: Sponsored by the Townsend Center for the Humanities and hosted at the D-Lab, the Berkeley Digital Humanities Working Group is a “low-stakes, no-prep” place for the DH community to gather on a regular basis to explore a variety of tools and topics. Members include a diverse range of students, staff, and faculty. Events have included:

  • discussions on topics such as computational text analysis, DH pedagogy, digital methods and tools, and maintaining an online scholarly presence with social media
  • workshops in text analysis, network analysis, databases, and other technologies
  • hacking days(“peer office hours”) for working on DH projects together
  • guest speakers from California Digital Library, King’s College London, and Stanford’s Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis
  • the annual DH Faire and poster session
  • HackFSM, a hackathon for the Free Speech Movement Digital Archive at the Bancroft Library
