This post is a follow up from my last post about the digital humanities workshop I organized for AAS 2017. Well, I ended up not attending the workshop itself because of my visa situation (what a bummer!). But, the workshop itself went pretty well (thankfully!). The University of Rochester’s Re-Envisioning Japan (REJ) team (Joanne Bernardi, Nora Dimmock, and Tracy Stuber) and the Lafayette College’s East Asia Image Collection team (Paul Barclay) successfully facilitated the workshop.

The workshop itself comprised four activities:

  1. Introduction of the two projects
  2. Hands-on activities: Object Encounters, Twenty Questions with an Object, and Metadata and Tagging
  3. Concluding comments (recapping projects)
  4. Q & A

Here are some of the photos from the workshop (courtesy of Nora Dimmock):

And here is the link to the REJ team’s powerpoint presentation.
