Internet Archive invites Humanists and Cultural Heritage Professionals to Web Archive Data Analysis Workshop

The Internet Archive invites humanists and cultural heritage professionals to participate in a full-day workshop, “Humanities and the Web: Introduction to Web Archive Data Analysis” (https://archive-it.org/blog/humanities-and-the-web/). The workshop takes place following the National Humanities Conference on November 14, 2022 at the Los Angeles Central Library. With generous support from the Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, participant travel stipends (up to $1000) are available to offset air and/or ground transportation, parking, lodging, and food costs incurred to participate in the workshop.

Description
Everyday, significant cultural production occurs globally across the web (e.g., e-poetry, electronic literature, news, social media, and more). As a publication medium that is both a primary source and a networked container of primary sources, the web presents challenges of scale and complexity for those that seek to integrate it in research and teaching. During this workshop participants will be introduced to web archives as a primary source, gain familiarity with web archive research use cases; and acquire hands-on experience creating web archive collections and computationally analyzing web archives using Archives Research Compute Hub (ARCH) (https://archivesunleashed.org/arch/). The event will draw on web archive data collected by members of the Collaborative ART Archive (CARTA) (https://communitywebs.archive-it.org/carta.html) and the Community Webs program (https://communitywebs.archive-it.org/index.html).

Participant Support
As mentioned above, participant travel stipends are available to offset costs incurred to participate in the workshop. Each stipend can cover up to $1,000 in travel expenses, including air and/or ground transportation, parking, lodging, and food costs.

Please submit the following application to attend the event (https://form.jotform.com/222216849385160). All are welcome to apply; however, space is limited and the priority deadline for all applications is September 23, 2022. If your application is accepted, we will follow up with you no later than September 30, 2022.
