Induction 2011 – Web Technologies

Induction Day 2011
Induction Day 2011

This week I had the opportunity to attend the Induction Day for the MA DH, MA DCS and MA DAM students. It was a great opportunity to meet this year’s students and talk to them about their interests and the different optional modules on offer.

In the last few weeks, Raffaele Viglianti and I have been busy preparing the arrival of a new optional module, Web Technologies, which we are very excited about. On this module, we aim to teach students to develop and design a website not only using some of the most important technologies for the web (XHTML, CSS and JavaScript), but also applying the principles of user-centred design, accessibility and information architecture.

With this new module we are hoping students can gain an understanding and insight into web technologies and learn to present content and information on the web.

DH at Reading

DH at Reading logoThis Friday, the University of Reading discusses Digital Humanities at the one-day event DH at Reading.
High-profile Digital Humanities speakers will introduce fundamental topics of research in the field, and will be followed by a round table led by Ph.D. students with a strong DH component in their work.

Elena Pierazzo, from the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College will introduce Medieval and Modern Manuscripts in the Digital Age; while the round table will be joined by the department’s PhD students √ėyvind Eide, Tom Salyers and Raffaele Viglianti.

We’re excited to talk DH at Reading and contribute to the dissemination of the disciplines to those institutions interested in participating more to the field.
