Bringing digital humanities to the community college and vice versa

To conduct a survey of community college faculty and administrations and host a series of workshops at the Community College Humanities Association annual meeting to consider how community colleges can better participate in and contribute to the multiple ongoing conversations about digital humanities teaching and research.

Lane Community College proposes a Level I Start Up grant. The project will initiate a much needed nationwide dialogue regarding the lack of community college participation in, and contribution to digital humanities. The project's short-term outcome is the engagement of national thinkers, experts and community college stakeholders in a national conversation that will begin the longer discussion of how to improve community college engagement with digital humanities (a conversation that has been sorely lacking). This conversation will include blogs, e-surveys, a wiki and website and culminate in a day-long pre-conference session at the Fall 2013 Community College Humanities Association conference and a white paper synthesizing the project's discoveries and work. Long-term goals are to improve community college participation in Digital Humanities and hence support 2-year college humanities students in their education and careers.
