Description

Postgraduate Methods Workshop with Paul Spence (KCL)

Digital tools are all around us, and even in the humanities, people use digital frameworks almost without realising it nowadays. Whereas once ‘digital competence’ was the preserve of a minority in fields such as Modern Languages, we now live in a more complex research landscape influenced by practices and debates in digital culture studies, the digital humanities, library and other institutional policies on infrastructure and of course, wider commercial platforms. The main challenge for researchers is how to achieve a level of digital literacy appropriate to their own research interests and how to integrate digital practice within existing processes of meaning making.

Participants will be asked to experiment with a range of digital methods currently used in research at the intersection between modern language and digital humanities, and the emphasis will be on critical appraisal rather than technical proficiency. You will be encouraged to explore digital methods from the perspective of your own research interests (and materials, where practical).

It is not essential to bring your own device, but you may get more out of the workshop if you bring a laptop. Once you have registered, you will be given further information about workshop preparation, which will involve an optional pre-workshop task.
