Beginning Monday, April 9, the Athenaeum will host a short series of structured workshops developed to introduce humanities faculty, students, and interested staff to R and Python, specifically for humanities projects. There will be a total of four sessions, two workshops for each programming language. The workshops are intentionally conceived with the absolute beginner in mind. In essence, we hope to provide a pathway for anyone who has become aware that R and Python may be of use to their work and simply need a means to get started.

The schedule:

M 4/9, 11:30a-1:00p: Beginning Python for DH I

W 4/11, 11:30a-1:00p: Beginning R for DH I

M 4/16, 11:30a-1:00p: Beginning Python for DH II

W 4/18, 11:30a-1:00p: Beginning R for DH II

Sessions will be facilitated by Chris Miller, Nick Bolin (Python), and Rohan Joseph (R). We look forward to hosting participants, who are welcome to join any combination or all of these workshops. We will provide laptops pre-loaded with needed tools for the sessions.

Please do share broadly among your networks, and feel free to send any follow-up questions directly. RSVPs, while not required, are appreciated in advance for a general count. Please contact Chris Miller, Digital Humanities Coordinator for more information or to RSVP.
