Python for Humanists

This short workshop will introduce humanists to the programming language Python and the numerous possibilities for its use for research in the humanities. No prior programming experience required!

Having attended this workshop, participants can expect to be able to:

  • set up a Python coding environment suitable for use with their own computer.
  • recognize potential use cases for Python and its libraries as humanistic research tools.
  • demonstrate familiarity with fundamental Python syntax and concepts such as variables, data types, lists, and conditionals.
  • identify available resources for practicing skills and creating projects with Python.

This workshop will be offered several times during the fall semester. Stay tuned for more information!
