Advanced Topics in TEI Encoding

A series of workshops for humanities faculty and graduate students to explore advanced uses of digital text encoding as an essential method in humanities scholarship.

This project offers a series of nine advanced 3-day and 4-day institutes in text encoding for scholarly humanities projects with TEI. Aimed at an audience with a working knowledge of the TEI Guidelines, these institutes provide an intensive environment for more advanced project development, including schema customization, encoding strategy, and documentation. The institutes will focus on three topics of particular interest to scholars working on digital humanities projects: the encoding of manuscripts, the representation of contextual information, and the development of large thematic research collections.

Broadening the Digital Humanities: The Vectors-IML Summer Institute on Multimodal Scholarship

A four-week summer institute to investigate scholarly research methods in the digital age, to include thematic discussion seminars and hands-on workshops in collaboration with technologists.

This proposal requests funding to support a four-week summer institute for 12 participating scholars. The Institute, set to take place at the University of Southern California's Institute for Multimedia Literacy from mid-July to mid-August, 2009, will serve as an introduction to key issues in the multimodal digital humanities and as a hands-on practicum in the creation of digital scholarship. Scholars will learn both by engaging with a variety of existing projects but also through the production of their own project; these projects will at once enrich the participants??? own understanding of the digital humanities and model the field for other scholars through their publication in the electronic journal Vectors, and elsewhere online. The Institute will provide the opportunity to explore the benefits of interactive media for scholarly analysis and authorship, illustrating the possibilities of multimodal media for humanities investigation.

Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HpC): Coordinating High Performance Computing Institutes and the Digital

A total of nine institutes and one joint conference for humanities scholars, to be hosted by three different high-performance computer centers: the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.

The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will lead a collaboration partnering the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center (PSC), and the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that will engage scholars in sustained collaboration with high performance computing specialists in order to identify, create, and adapt computational tools and methods. The Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory will serve as a portal for humanities scholars to receive technical support, access to high performance computing, and products and services associated with the digital technologies. Participants will consult with each computing staff about digital technology, discuss these technologies via a virtual community, and develop long-term technological goals for their projects via nine mini-residencies and a two-day conference.
