Workshops and Events

Here you will find our previous and upcoming workshops.

We regularly organize workshops on campus for faculty, students and staff. These are excellent opportunities to learn and interact with the special collections and other LLILAS Benson materials.

One recent workshop was a day long event titled “Deciphering Spanish Colonialism Collectively“. Participants learned about different crowdsourcing tools and had hands-on experience with 16th Century colonial manuscripts.

The DS Office collaborates with other universities and partner institutions to host events that showcase our special collections in their digital as well as physical form through our traveling exhibitions. Our most recent collaboration took place in the University of Texas El Paso and was titled “Mapping Mexican History“.
