The Digital Scholarship program will offer an introductory workshop for individuals curious about using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and drafting .html files using a text editor. Understanding the rudiments of HTML will allow attendees to create a simple webpage. It will also expand the ways in which one can interact with what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editors, such as the ones in WordPress and other web platforms.
The workshop leader will provide an overview of what HTML is, how to create an .html file, and basic markup syntax for tasks including text formatting, hyperlinking, inserting images, and constructing tables.
Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their personal laptops. They can follow along by using a text editing program. Most computers have a simple text editor installed. You may wish to use Wordpad (PC), TextEdit (Mac), or Sublime Text Editor (PC/Mac). To view your files, you will need to have an internet browser installed (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer). No coding experience needed.
Jessica Linker (PhD, University of Connecticut) is the CLIR Humanities and Digital Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellow at Bryn Mawr College.
This year, the Digital Scholarship program is sponsoring a weekly meetup for graduate students across Bryn Mawr to learn, share, and discuss all things digital scholarship. Some weeks will feature workshops, research presentations, professional development opportunities, or Q&A sessions with experts and other graduate students. Other weeks will be informal opportunities to meet graduate students outside of your department to talk, share, or troubleshoot. No technical expertise or experience with Digital Scholarship necessary! We welcome all graduate students curious about digital scholarship.
Interested in paid teaching and research opportunities? Come to a meetup to find out how you can work with us on digital scholarship projects, develop pedagogical materials, and/or teach digital scholarship workshops.
