WEDNESDAY 30 MAY

> Digital Humanities Training Event led by Adam Crymble (Hertfordshire)
'The Digital Thesis: Managing your Data and Preparing it for Submission'.
Digital Humanities Lab, Seminar Room 1, 10.30-12.30pm.

This training workshop will be useful for both PGRs and staff who are (or will be) supervising PGRs in the Humanities. The data created by postgraduate researchers in the Humanities is increasingly in an electronic format — from Excel spreadsheets to 3D modelling. Knowing how to effectively manage electronic data and prepare it for submission is therefore essential. This workshop will provide introductory, hands-on training in data management specifically tailored for PGRs and their supervisors. Numbers for this event are limited so please sign up through this link.
