DigiHSS Workshop with Prof. Karacas

You are cordially invited to participate in this semester’s final Digital Humanities and Social Sciences (DigiHSS) workshop, which will be held on Tuesday, April 28, 4:30 to 6:00pm in the Faculty Center for Professional Development in the Library (Building 1L).

We are delighted that Prof. Cary Karacas, co-coordinator of the Geography program, will offer a workshop titled, “Using the Internet to Make Your Research Accessible to a Wide Audience.” In 2010, Professor Karacas created JapanAirRaids.org, a digital archive, in order to promote discussion and further research about the aerial bombing of Japan’s cities during World War II. JapanAirRaids.org has become an essential source of information and analysis, and Dr. Karacas is widely recognized both in the U.S. and in Japan as a leading expert on this topic. Since its inception, the Website has attracted more than 150,000 visits, with many scholars referring to the site regularly as an academic resource. He will focus on the nuts and bolts of what went into the making of the Website as related to gathering and posting primary documents, audio recordings, and still/moving images.
