Dagitab II is here!

Finally, after one year of pandemia and delays, Dagitab II is here. Online, but in this way we can accommodate more students. Here you have all the information. PH stands for Philippine time, BE stands for Belgian time (UTC+2)

Webinars – refresh in DH and preparation for Dagitab II (July 2021)

After the long break imposed by COVID we will be back with Dagitab II -A second summer school on Digital Humanities organized by the University of Antwerp and the University of the Philippines and funded by VLIRUOS- . Before Dagitab II there are a few things that old students might want to refresh and new students might want to learn. This is why we have organized a webinar series between March and May. All the information in the poster below. Please remember that on this website you also have all the materials from Dagitab I, in case you would like to have a look at them again.

Philippine newspapers in the Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes collection

Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes is beginning to upload the newspapers digitized two years ago at the Hemeroteca Municipal de Madrid. They are mostly Philippine newspapers of the late 19th and early 20th century written in Spanish such as Comercio: Diario de la tarde from 1887, which can be accessed in this link. More information on this is available today in their blog.

DigiPhiLit: A project on Digital Humanities, Philippine Literature in Spanish and Distance Learning.

A new project combining Digital Humanities and Philippine Literature in Spanish was elected for funding by the Erasmus+ programme last August. It is coordinated from the University of Antwerp and there are five more member universities: Clermont-Auvergne, Paris Nanterre, Rey Juan Carlos, UNED and Ateneo de Manila University.

Among the different training activities that we are planning for this project, next February there will be a DH online workshop series (in Spanish mostly). You can see more information about it here https://digiphilit.uantwerpen.be/

New sections in Philperiodicals

The project and the site are in continuous development despite the confinement and the strange circumstances in which most of us find ourselves right now. We have now three more sections in our website:

  1. A bibliography section in which we will be adding research publications, presentations, projects, sites… The conditions are that (1) the research is done (a) by Filipinos or (b) on the Philippines and (2) that they use DH related methods or talk about DH issues in the Philippines. If you would like us to add some material, please contact us through the contact form in the contact section.
  2. An open section with materials that includes (1) online sites where to find digitized materials from/about the Philippines. (2) Tutorials and guidelines to use DH tools to work with those materials. The tools are related to the topics covered during Dagitab 1.
  3. A password protected section (in DH Summer Course) with all the materials used during Dagitab 1. If you attended Dagitab 1 or are very interested in seeing these materials, please contact us through the contact form so we can send you the password.
  4. A Forum (Dagitab Forum) to share questions and ideas.

Enjoy and #stayhome

Dagitab continues…

After the summer course in QC, the communication channels between Belgium and the Philippines are being kept open for questions, ideas, projects, and suggestions. All this can be shared on the ‘discussion’ section of the Humanities Commons group DAGITAB https://hcommons.org/groups/dagitab/

In this group, the materials used during the summer course (slides, explanations, data, etc) are being shared for the future consultation and use of the attendees.
