Digital Humanities Workshop for High School Girls

by Stephanie Peebles Tavera

Dear Colleagues,

I am chairing a one-day summer Digital Humanities Workshop for high school girls. It will be held June 10th, 2017 at the University of Texas at Arlington in Arlington, TX. Although I realize this workshop is most convenient for those that live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, I wanted to promote it to a wider audience just in case you–or someone you know–will be in the area and might like to attend. It is co-sponsored by the UTA Women’s and Gender Studies Program and College of Engineering. We hope to encourage girls to join STEM fields, but also teach them how the humanities might play a role in STEM. A flyer and application can be found here: Digital Humanities Workshop for Girls Flyer and Application The deadline is May 1st. Our keynote speaker is Darlena Kelley, CEO of Simidigi (http://www.simidigi.com/about/), who will offer a one-and-a-half-hour intro to coding session as part of the workshop.

Please feel free to contact me at tavera@uta.edu with any questions, or to submit your application.

Best,
