Seminar in Digital Humanities: SSJ

On Sunday, October 12th, 2014, Angela Kikue Davenport led a seminar on New Directions in the Digital Humanities at the Shakespeare Society of Japan conference at Gakushuin University in Tokyo. This was the initial seminar of what became a standing Working Group for training in new digital technologies in Japan. The members of this seminar also included Thomas Dabbs (Aoyama Gakuin University), John Yamamoto-Wilson (Sophia University), and Momoko Morishima (Keio University Library).

The purpose of this seminar was not only to widen the possibilities of Early Modern Studies for scholars in Japan, but to increase awareness of the significance of DH resources and databases in our studies. A complete description of this seminar can be found at the DHFRS web site.

This seminar also seeded what became the organizational effort to establish a standing Working Group, one that would focus on training in new digital technologies during the Early Modern period.
