Ever thought “I need a database” but not sure where or how to start? Are the spreadsheets you use to organize your research becoming unwieldy? Maybe you’re just having trouble imagining your work as data. This workshop is for humanities scholars who are data-curious. Using case studies from W&L faculty projects, we’ll share practical tips for formatting your data and connecting your material with existing data sets, as well as discuss the effects of your decisions on your data and the material you study. You’re encouraged to bring your own data set or data-friendly project to workshop during this session.
