In the interest of continuing our discussion from today’s BootCamp about WordPress, I would like to propose a session on how to best apply WordPress for active students, scholars, and job-seekers in the humanities. Since the needs and interests of those who work in the humanities are very different from those who work in STEM, business, and other fields, what are some of the key elements to a successful site in humanities disciplines? How do we manage self-promotion, possible new connections (interdisciplinary and within disciplines), and creative digital ways to present our work?
Please remember your lap-tops and tablets for workshops and sessions
