Visiting Scholar Stefanie Sobola (University of Stuttgart, Germany) will present and seek feedback on her work-in-progress Master’s thesis in Digital Humanities. Sobola’s thesis traces American Indian stereotypes in historic newspapers of the 19th century, contrasting this to those found in classical literary studies and history, and exploring how such depictions affected an “anti-Native American” sentiment at the time. She is interested in developing a model that could recognize stereotypes automatically.

DH Open Office Hours are a great way for beginning and experienced researchers to share knowledge about how to use different tools, or to turn an idea into a solid project. We’ll also share current and completed projects, as well as our experiences with many different facets of the DH world. There will also be informal talk sessions with visiting digital scholars. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and faculty who are interested in DH and see what they’re up to. Feel free to bring your lunch!

DH Open Office Hours will be held every Wednesday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM in the Digital Scholarship Commons Media Lounge, located on the second floor of Snell Library (take a right out of the stairwell, head through the glass double doors, and take an immediate left toward the orange couches).
