DAGITAB: Summer School on Digital Humanities in UP Diliman

Last July started the second part of the Philperiodicals project with a Summer school in Manila on Digital Humanities. The workshop, Dagitab, is the first part of a two-workshops series and we hope that it can be echoed in different UP Campuses soon. A three-national team of DH practitioners (2 Philippine, 2 Belgian and 2 Spanish) coordinated by Dr Anna Sibayan-Sarmiento, delivered the sessions. Attendants included UP researchers from Diliman, Baguio, Iloilo, Cebu, and Mindanao.

The first part of the Philperiodicals project consists of the digitization of historical newspapers from the University of the Philippines Diliman library. Thus, the main aim of this workshop was making the most of those digitized materials with digital tools.

The materials of the sessions will be available in this Humanities Commons group: https://hcommons.org/groups/dagitab/.
