The McGillicuddy Humanities Center’s next DH Pop In event will be Friday, January 22, at 11AM. The MHC’s Humanities Specialist Karen Sieber will show participants how to use a free, easy-to-use program called Canva to design event flyers, social media posts, brochures, powerpoints, resumes and more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link to join. No digital skills or design aesthetic needed.
While not a digital humanities tool per se, as humanities events, outreach, and employment move to a virtual format, learning design skills using programs like Canva will allow participants to better promote their events and research and engage with the public.
This event is part of an ongoing “DH PopIn” series which introduces students and faculty to easy-to-use tools and methods in the digital realm that help explore and share the humanities in new and exciting ways. The series will also feature virtual chats with noted digital humanities practitioners from across the country to discuss the process building a variety of different projects, from GIS mapping to textual analysis.
