See you soon...
 

We should be proud of ourselves and our community for making it through yet another virtual semester. We hope that DH@SDSU has helped-- with our programming, teachdh.sdsu.edu, and more.

While the future is filled with opportunity, pivoting from virtual to in-person DH events is not something we can currently predict. As we continue to prioritize our students' and faculty's safety and wellbeing, we acknowledge that change is tough and encourage you all to use DH as a medium for expression.

DH Showcase postponed

 

As this semester comes to a close, we continue to honor our community by not asking more of our weary faculty, and not asking our students to take the lesser option once again. Instead, we acknowledge the continued and cumulative effects of pandemic anxiety, Zoom fatigue, and the myriad of life stressors this past year has wrought. 

 

We have postponed our 2021 showcase and intend to hold a huge, glorious three-year (2020, 2021, 2022) celebration next spring wherein we will invite recent alum and current students to gather, in person and online, to share their work in ways that honor our collective experiences and renew our community, taking steps towards a better future.

Meet the DH Center's latest student assistants
The DH Center at SDSU Library welcomed two new SDSU student assistants to our staff foSpring 2021. Fabrizio (left) and Hannah (right) are developing self-paced tool tutorials, adding to our growing collection of tutorials that cover podcasting, video creation, Voyant for text analysis, FontForge, Twine, and more. Fabrizio is working on Onodo and Hannah is creating a tutorial about several project management tools. Read the short blog post here.
What's new with teachdh? 
We continue adding resources to our Teaching During Quarantine website. In addition to new tutorials, we’ve added a section for computational text analysis, with an emphasis on Voyant Tools. 

Computational text analysis makes use of computers to help you process text, explore research questions, and assist with sense making (“distant reading”).
