CESTA invites you to attend two presentation sessions that showcase the work of our undergraduate Research Assistants. These students are at the heart of CESTA's community, working closely with faculty, staff, and researchers to manage and analyze humanistic and interdisciplinary data. Research Assistants are vital collaborators who help develop and formalize research questions, tools, methods, and final products.

This summer, 30 Stanford undergrads have taken part in our research assistant program, engaging in various phases of the research process including data collection and cleaning, mapping, analyzing, and building digital visualizations. The research assistants have been introduced to myriad people and places that support digital humanities research and career development, including Stanford University Libraries and BEAM. Collectively, research assistants have also participated in lively conversations about the field of digital humanities as well as some of the challenges and possibilities of pursuing the humanities within their academic career at Stanford and beyond.

Each session will feature individual and collaborative presentations from undergraduate research assistants, following the schedules listed below. Each presentation followed by a very brief Q&A. You are welcome to come to all or part of any session (August 10 and 31), and we also hope that you can join us for the celebratory reception at the conclusion of the August 31 session, from 3:00 - 4:00 pm.
