When: Monday, November 2nd, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Where: Dresher Center for the Humanities (216 PAHB)
This session will introduce several of the digital tools being used by UMBC humanities faculty for their research, which can be employed across the disciplines. A light lunch will be provided.
Zotero and Scrivener
Meredith Oyen, History
Zotero is a free reference management software program that can be used both for research and for teaching. It is particularly useful for organizing, sorting, and sharing sources and projects between writing partners or groups. Scrivener is a writing platform particularly useful for organizing, drafting, and revising long-form writing in the humanities and social sciences. Dr. Oyen will demonstrate some of the advantages of using both with samples from her own work.
Adobe Premiere Pro, Excel, and Atlas.ti
Ed Larkey, Modern Languages, Linguistics, and Intercultural Communication
Dr. Larkey works with digital tools in his cross-cultural comparative analyses of international television series. He is currently using Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Microsoft Excel, Atlas,ti, MultiModal Analysis, and Cinemetrics to compile, correlate, and visualize quantitative and qualitative data related to temporal parameters on narrative structure, sequences, and content. The session will be of interest to faculty doing research in anthropology, cultural studies, ethnography, discourse analysis, and audiovisual analysis.
