Digital Humanities Institute–Beirut: 10-12 March

In Events,News and Announcements by AUB Libraries / January 11, 2017 / 0 Comments

The Center for Arts and Humanities, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Information Technology, the Department of English, and the University Libraries at the American University of Beirut (AUB), are happy to host the second iteration of the Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut (DHI-B 2017), that will take place from 10-12 March 2017.

Nina Ghannam, Assistant to the Librarian and and Vera Al Ashkar, Digital Imaging Specialist from the Digital Initiatives and Imaging Department at the University Libraries will be giving a workshop entitled: “Introduction to Optical Character Recognition for Arabic. This workshop address Optical Character Recognition, by which a computer can take a scanned text and turn it into digital text file.  It will address specific problems related to Arabic.

The workshop will be introduced by Elie Kahale, Head of the Digital Initiatives and Imaging Department at the University Libraries.

This event builds on the success of the event that took place in March 2015 in Beirut. The theme this year in 2017 is Shaping Digital Humanities Communities: Local, Regional and Consortial.

The humanities in the twenty-first century have taken a decidedly digital turn. In some cases this means traditional questions are addressed with new digital skills or new modes of scholarly communication, in others, entirely new research questions are emerging with technology.The main goal of the Institute is to create an environment where different stakeholders in the academic communities of Lebanon and the region learn together about new computing technologies and their impact on the humanities.

Like the digital humanities themselves, DHI-B is designed as a meeting place, between faculty, librarians, students and technologists. It features hands-on workshops, poster presentations, lightning talks, and lectures, conceived with a collegial spirit of collaboration in mind. These workshops aim to introduce you to some of the ways that research and teaching are changing in the humanities. Many of those workshops have been suggested by the community themselves. They will be taught by MA and PhD students, librarians, instructors and professors.

These courses are not all of the same length. The long and short courses run over the period of the first two days, so only one of these courses can be taken alongside a mini course which will run during the last day of the institute (Sunday).

Registration:

Attendance is by registration only. Please REGISTER .

Free admission, to AUB and AMICAL attendees.
