The goal of Day of Digital Humanities (DH) is to bring together participants to reflect on the question, “Just what do computing humanists really do?” To do this, participants will attend a lecture to be given by Keynote speaker, Professor Donald Sturgeon, creator and administrator of Chinese Text Project (ctext.org) and Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science, Durham University (UK). Followed by a guided tour at the Digital Scholarship Lab and the MakerSpace 3-D printing Lab. After lunch, participants will form into groups to take part in a half-day hackathon, a fun, easy and rewarding data scraping competition.
Targets: University Students (Priority will be given to CUHK students at the Faculty of Arts)
Fee: Free (lunch will be provided)
Participants must attend the whole-day activities.
