The DH at Berkeley Summer Institute will also feature a variety of on- and off-campus speakers. Professors from the School of Information will cover topics such as stewardship of born-digital materials and natural language processing for “long tail” use cases in the humanities. A variety of speakers will discuss critical approaches in the digital humanities, highlighting the history of diversity in DH, documentation, and studying user-generated “fan” data.  Partners from Educational Technology Services (ETS) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) will join the Summer Institute to address the topic of DH Pedagogy and offer consulting to instructors.  All speaker events are open to the public.
