Introduction to Minimal Computing for Research (RCR; online)

This workshop introduces fundamental concepts and practices of minimal computing, with a focus on two key ethical areas: reducing the environmental impacts of computation and ensuring broad, equitable access to digital resources by minimizing their computational dependencies. Participants will explore how to balance those ethical imperatives with the computational requirements of scholarship, particularly in the digital humanities. Specific topics of discussion will include static website generation and maintenance, accessibility via minimal design, and the types of foundational knowledge required to facilitate a minimal approach to computation for research. 

No previous experience with digital scholarship tools or methods is required.
