School of Humanities History lecturer awarded grant for writing workshop in Colombia

22 June 2018

University of Hertfordshire History lecturer, Mr Adam Crymble, has been awarded a £17k grant to put on a 3-day writing workshop in Bogota, Colombia.

Crymble, a senior lecturer of digital history at the University of Hertfordshire, has been awarded a £17k grant to put on a three-day writing workshop in Bogota, Colombia related to his Programming Historian project.

The workshop, which is being held on the 31 July 2018 until 3 August 2018, will bring together scholars from countries across the Americas, to help them develop their digital humanities publishing skills and confidence, and to build a community of Latin American scholars who are writing and publishing about the digital needs of their own communities.

'It is time that Latin America and Spanish-speakers more generally take control of the scholarly agenda in digital humanities” states Crymble. “Digital technology has so much to offer scholarship in the Global South, and this is the perfect way to get those scholars talking to each other and sharing ideas for the future.'

Crymble is a founding editor of The Programming Historian project. The Programming Historian, is a digital humanities journal that focuses on how scholars adopt technology for their work. The event is being held in partnership with co-editor, Maria José Afanador-Llach at the Université de los Andes.
