ARCE is hosting a free virtual workshop on June 26, 2023 at 1:00 PM ET/7:00 PM EET that will start with a lecture by renowned Egyptologist Dr. Peter Der Manuelian, who will discuss how he is incorporating recent technologies to teach students at Harvard University.
The lecture will be followed by a presentation introducing our ongoing project to bring digital humanities to US college classrooms. This workshop provides all the tools and knowledge necessary to implement this research in your classroom. Using ARCE’s online archives as a starting point, students will create digital exhibitions that can be published to a global audience on Google Arts & Culture.
You don’t have to be an Egyptologist or archaeologist to attend this workshop!
Both the lecture and ARCE’s presentation are open to college educators of all disciplines.
About the project:
In 2020, ARCE initiated a four-year project in partnership with the US Department of Education with the two-fold goal of digitizing and publishing 13 projects from ARCE’s extensive conservation archive and partnering with faculty from community colleges, HBCUs, and minority-serving institutions to introduce student-curated digital exhibitions as in-class research projects. The initiative includes annual workshops for partner faculty to share knowledge, digital tools, and platforms with their students.
Select student projects are uploaded to the ARCE Google Arts & Culture Partner page and the ARCE Archive website annually, further disseminating the Conservation Archive to interested global audiences. The project aims to expand student and faculty experience, increase open access to ARCE’s unique Conservation Archive, and integrate digital humanities and management skills into the classroom at community colleges, HBCUs, and MSIs.
