About this event

The Digital Cultures and Societies Winter School is three days of workshops about digital research for humanities and social sciences. The Winter School is an opportunity to meet fellow UQ HASS HDR students and form a cohort dedicated to the intersection of our research with digital research concepts and methods. There is no need to be an expert in digital methods, this is an introductory program that will teach you these methods, techniques, and digital project considerations and possibilities. In collaborative workshops you will have the opportunity to engage with researchers across humanities and social sciences whose work engages with the intersection between digital technologies and our personal and professional lives, our private and public selves. The Digital Cultures and Societies team will lead discussions about digital research approaches and workshops on developing your own research practices. You will be introduced to digital storytelling, digital project management and problem solving, text analysis and data considerations, and machine vision and image classification. This is a cohort-based event, with the same group attending every session and leading to long lasting relationships and collaboration opportunities. Digital Cultures and Societies are relevant to all areas of Humanities and Social Sciences, so students from every school are strongly encouraged to express their interest in attending. Please remember to fill your EoI before Monday the 15th of May here:

Please note that this year the Winter School is only open for enrolled UQ HASS students.
