The ASEEES Slavic Digital Humanities group is pleased to announce a pre-conference digital project workshop, to take place on the morning of December 6, 2018 in Boston. Together we will examine artifacts and interpretive questions derived from the Sourcebook of the Post-Soviet 1990s. The technical training sessions and discussion groups within the workshop will address key research questions connected to the project.
All participants are welcome, including those with no DH expertise. We especially encourage language, culture, and area experts to join us in the service of preserving, interrogating, and (re-)interpreting key artifacts from the “long 1990s,” defined as the period between 1985 and 2000. The workshop will feature guest experts tasked with guiding participants in developing skills relevant to the Digital Humanities, including web-scraping, metadata, and digital curation.
