This introductory workshop will offer an overview of the various tools and platforms available for digital media projects in the humanities and social sciences. It will then introduce how WordPress can be used to create digital media projects such as Scott Saul’s digital companion website, “Richard Pryor’s Peoria.” No experience is required. If possible, bring a laptop and register for an account at WordPress.com.
The workshop will be led by Stacy Reardon. Stacy is the Literatures and Digital Humanities Librarian at UC Berkeley as well as a doctoral candidate in Ethnic American literature at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is a member of the Scholarly Communication Expertise Group at UC Berkeley, serves on the editorial board for C&RL News, and has several years of experience in instructional technology.
Open to UCB graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty in all disciplines.

This event is part of the Humanities and Social Sciences Communication Series, presented by Graduate Division’s Professional Development program, together with the Townsend Center.
This series will bring together panels of Berkeley faculty, graduate students, and staff who excel at engaging broad audiences on humanities and social sciences topics, across a variety of media. Each panel will be followed by a workshop highlighting a campus resource that students can use to hone their communication skills.
We hope that graduate students, faculty, and staff who work in the humanities and social sciences will join us for this exciting new series!
