Digital Humanities, 1:00 PM
Digital Humanities sit at the crossroads of computing and the humanities. Computational tools and methods enable scholars to visualize data, mine text, and produce reports. On Tuesday, April 16 at 1:00 PM, Lindsay Wittwer of the Centro Library and Archives will present on how to access and use Centro’s collective access platforms for research, and create exhibits and timelines. She will also introduce the Puerto Rican Heritage Cultural Ambassador Program resources: digital collections, oral histories, and Puerto Rican Voices TV segments.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 3:00 PM
GIS is designed to gather, store, manage, and analyze geographical data. It is an effective problem solving tool through spatial analysis. At 3:00 PM, Jennifer Hinojosa, Centro Research Associate and Data Center Coordinator will share research on the Puerto Rican community in Florida and showcase research tools made readily available by the Center for Puerto Rican Studies to researchers.
Also, plan to join us the following day, April 17, 8:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.at the Puerto Rico, Puerto Ricans “In Pursuit of Puerto Rican Studies” Research Summit at the UCF Fairwinds Alumni Center. Learn more about the conference here: http://centropr.nationbuilder.com/florida_conference
