Workshops & Events

Pixelating: A Digital Humanities Mixer - Co-working session - 12:00pm

The Pixelating Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.

This session of Pixelating is an open co-working session - a time to work on DH projects and skills with others for support, both moral and technical.

During this time you might:
- work through a tutorial or training
-clean up some messy data that's been bothering you
-set up a project blog or website
-work on your metadata
-check out DH resources such as books and data sources available at UBC Library (librarians will be on hand to help out)

We provide tea and coffee, soft chairs, tables, wireless internet, and interesting people to talk to, collaborate with, and bounce ideas off of. You bring your laptops, DH projects, and ideas.

This is an open event - drop in and out as your schedule allows.


SPSS (Part One) - Environment, Data Entry and One Variable Analysis - 10:00am

SPSS is a statistical analysis, data management and data documentation software. It is used by researchers to gain insights from data, and predict what will happen next.

In this introductory-level workshop, you will learn how to enter your data into SPSS, and summarise, graph and present your data through this software. You will also learn how to do one-variable tests for the purpose of inferential statistics.

Join us for this beginners workshop, and learn the basics that will help you harness this powerful tool.


Multi-Disciplinary Graduate Student Writing Community - 1:00pm

Facilitator: Nandini.

Experience shows that it is easier (and more pleasant) to get your thesis written when you do two things:

1. Write regularly
2. Are part of a writing group or community

Our peer-facilitated writing communities give you the opportunity to do both; Weekly meetings with a Peer Writing Consultant from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication give you a chance to work out writing goals for the week, ask questions, share best practices, and connect with your peers. Throughout the week, engage in a facilitated online space that allows you to ask questions, keep each other accountable, and share your work for feedback if you wish. The goal of this community is to offer support, engagement with your peers in other programs, and extra accountability to keep you writing until your thesis is done.

Presented by The Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication.
