Workshops on Sustainability for Digital Projects

A series of five workshops for up to 150 participants to explore approaches to long term sustainability of digital humanities projects. The workshops would be hosted at the University of Pittsburgh, Brigham Young University, Brown University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Oklahoma State University.

The ongoing sustainability of digital humanities projects is of critical concern to the field. To help increase engagement with sustainability planning, the University of Pittsburgh has developed, with prior support from the NEH, the Socio-Technical Sustainability Roadmap (STSR). The STSR is a structured workshop that guides participants through the practice of creating effective sustainability plans, based on research findings that demonstrate that the needs of a project’s social infrastructure must be addressed alongside the needs of its technological infrastructure in order to successfully sustain digital work over time. We are applying to the NEH ODH IATDH Program to fund a series of five facilitated STSR workshops at regional digital humanities hubs located across the United States. We anticipate reaching 125-150 people in total and are particularly interested in attracting participants who lack access to digital sustainability infrastructures at their home institutions.

Expanding Communities of Practice

A ten-day residential institute and follow-up activities for 15 participants to develop core humanities computational research and project development skills. The in-person institute and follow-up workshop would be hosted at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

The CUNY Graduate Center’s Digital Humanities Research Institute (DHRI) will advance the research goals and professional growth of individual participants, while at the same time supporting their efforts to organize and lead digital humanities workshops in their local contexts. During a ten-day residential institute in June 2018, participants will explore interdisciplinary digital humanities research and teaching with leading DH scholars, develop core computational research skills through hands-on workshops, and begin developing versions of the DHRI for their own communities. Over the following academic year, each participant will have access to an online network of peers, as well as 20 hours of consultation from our experienced staff. When participants return to New York in June 2019 to report on their experiences, their reflections will inform the publication of a guide to leading digital humanities skill workshops in a variety of institutional contexts.

Virtual and Augmented Reality for the Digital Humanities Institute (VARDHI)

A two-week institute and follow-up activities for twelve participants on the theory and application of virtual and augmented reality technologies to humanities research. Duke University would serve as the host for the institute.

The Virtual and Augmented Reality for the Digital Humanities Institute (VARDHI) explores the importance of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) theories, methods, and technologies to humanities research and communications, with an emphasis on historical and cultural representation and analysis, media arts applications, and experience design for virtual and augmented realities. This field of inquiry brings together narrative, archival, data-driven, and spatial approaches to humanistic research in combination with studies of virtual reality, human cognition, experiential learning, and digital storytelling. The key focus of VARDHI is to understand what is at stake with VR and AR, both of which are enjoying a cultural renaissance thanks to advances in mobile technologies and head mounted displays, and both of which make VR and AR more accessible to a wider range of producers and a potential mass of consumers.

Digital Editions, Digital Corpora and new possibilities for the Humanities in the Academy and Beyond

An intensive two-week institute and follow up workshop for 30 humanities scholars on the application of new methods for annotating textual sources for digital editions and digital corpora of historical languages. The institute would be hosted at Tufts University.

Tufts University proposes to host an intensive two week, in-residence institute in the summer of 2018 for 30 humanists on the application of new methods for annotating textual sources. Support will be offered for on-campus housing, meals, and travel to and from Tufts. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the new techniques to their own sources materials; collaborate with others on a wide range of source materials; discuss challenges and results; set and evaluate project goals; and integrate annotation work into the classroom. The proposed workshop builds upon experiences from, and work subsequent to, “Working with Text in a Digital Age,” a 2012-2014 NEH IATDH project and the on-line seminar, Sunoikisis Digital Classics, which has introduced the proposed topics to a virtual and international audience. A two day follow up workshop will be held to expand upon the topics and results of the institute. Project output will inform new Sunoikisis Digital Classics curricula.

Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom

A one-week in-person institute hosted at Mississippi State University on approaches to computational textual analysis and how these techniques may be incorporated into the classroom. This institute will be followed by a series of virtual sessions focused on digital pedagogy and the humanities.

While the digital humanities often center on developing long-term research projects, it is the goal of our Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities Institute to bring the tools and methods of the digital humanities directly to the undergraduate classroom. “Textual Data and Digital Texts in the Undergraduate Classroom” aims to expand engagement with and access to digital humanities, particularly at under-resourced institutions, by teaching undergraduate instructors how to incorporate small-scale, data-focused digital projects into their humanities teaching. Our institute will include a one-week in-person session with hands-on instruction in turning text into data, and then analyzing that data and sharing the results. This week will be followed by bimonthly virtual sessions with experts in digital pedagogy. By the end of the institute, participants will have developed a classroom DH project or assignment about textual data.

Scholarship in Sound and Image

Two two-week workshops for 15 participants each on the study of time-based media like video and audio in multimodal humanities scholarship. The first instance of the workshop would be for advanced graduate students, while the second instance would be targeted toward humanities faculty and professionals.

In June 2015, we hosted a highly successful workshop, “Scholarship in Sound and Image,” funded by a grant from the NEH’s Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (IATDH). This workshop brought together 14 scholars of film and media studies to learn how to produce videographic criticism that incorporates sound and moving images via digital technologies. We are again applying for an IATDH grant, this time to support a pair of two-week workshops, in June 2017 and June 2018. The workshops – whose curriculum is based on a course that has been successfully taught four times at Middlebury College, in addition to the successful IATDH workshop in 2015 – is designed for 15 participants whose objects of study involve audio-visual media, especially film, radio, television, and other new digital media forms. The two iterations of the workshop will subdivide the participants, inviting Ph.D. students in 2017, and faculty or postdocs in 2018.

Make your edition: models and methods for digital textual scholarship

A three-week summer institute on the theory and development of digital scholarly editions for 25 participants to be hosted at the University of Pittsburgh.

The digital scholarly edition is more than a reading text with links and annotations. The digital scholarly edition is an integrated platform for performing research, and digital textual scholarship advances as this platform comes to support new types of inquiry The Institute will train 25 participants who already know how to mark up their texts (in TEI XML or similarly) to participate directly in the technological conceptualization and implementation of their editions, empowering them to undertake philological work that is informed by an understanding of what is possible technically, and of how to achieve it. This training responds to the risk of miscommunication or missed opportunity in collaborative situations where no participant in a project understands fully both the textual and the technological issues involved in designing and building a digital scholarly edition.

Doing Digital History 2016: An Institute for Mid-Career American Historians

A two-week institute for 25 historians of the United States, to be hosted by George Mason University’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, on advanced theory and application of new media tools for teaching and scholarship.

In the August 2014, twenty-three mid-career digital novices came to George Mason University (GMU) for the two-week intensive summer institute, Doing Digital History, organized by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM). Experts in their field of American history, these novices in digital methodologies were nervous, unsure of their own abilities, and intimidated by digital history. They all left as confident digital ambassadors with new skills, insights, and motivation to pursue digital work and become active participants in the growing community of digital humanists. Because of this success, and due to a continued need in the field, RRCHNM requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to organize Doing Digital History: 2016, a second Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (IATDH), during the summer of 2016 to serve a cohort of twenty-five established, mid-career American history faculty and public historians.

The Digital Native American and Indigenous Studies Project

Three three-day workshops of 35 participants each hosted by Yale University, Northern Arizona University, and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) on teaching new digital methods and exploring issues of preservation and access in Native American Studies. 

The Digital Native American studies Project (DNSP) proposes to offer three three-day workshops that will educate participants on issues of digital humanities research and methodology in the context of Native American Studies. Native American Studies, an interdisciplinary field of study exploring the history, culture, politics, issues, and contemporary experience of indigenous peoples of America, intersects with a number of issues related to access, preservation, and methodology that are problematized through the development and deployment of digital tools and methods and the conduct of digital research. While tremendous work has been done around the preservation and access of analog materials within Native American communities, there has been much less attention paid to the ways in which digital objects, practices, and methods function within Native communities and through Native American Studies scholarship outside of the anthropological context. Each three-day long workshop will serve thirty-five participants drawn from academic, cultural heritage, and tribal communities.

Space and Place in Africana/Black Studies: An Institute on Spatial Humanities, Theories, Methods and Practice

A three-week summer institute and a follow-up workshop for 20 participants to explore spatial approaches to Africana Studies.  The institute would be hosted by Purdue University and the follow-up workshop would be held at Hamilton College.

Hosted by the African American Studies & Research Center (AARC) at Purdue University, this two-year long institute beginning the summer of 2016 is designed to advance knowledge in Africana/Black Studies by affording 20 early and mid-career Africana/Black Studies scholars, graduate students and librarians an opportunity to think critically about the relationship and intersections between Africana Studies and the spatial humanities. To that end, the Institute is concerned with helping participants to think spatially, to internalize the concept of space, and to develop spatial literacies. The Institute will also advance digital and spatial humanities approaches among Africana/Black Studies scholars. Participants will explore key topics in spatial humanities and will be introduced to a breadth of geospatial technologies. The web-based platform, BlackDH.org (www.blackdh.org) will serve as a clearinghouse and portal for scholarly discussions that will grow out of the Institute.
