The German Historical Institute is hosting a set of hands-on workshops on Thursday, October 20, at their headquarters in Dupont Circle to demonstrate various kinds of digital mapping tools that might be of interest to humanities scholars.

There will be four different workshops offered over the course of the day, each about an hour and 45 minutes. A person can sign up for one, two, three, or all four workshops, as long as there’s space available.
