Past Bootcamps

The main goal for DHBootcamp 2016 was to offer an overview of the Digital Humanities. For that reason, we covered a wide range of topics, such as digital and game pedagogies, text analysis and visualizations, or GIS. We also included talks about acknowledging project challenges and developing a professional career on Digital Humanities.
