Folger Shakespeare Library's "Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics" Institute

A 13-day summer institute, hosted by the Folger Shakespeare Library, for fifteen technically-advanced scholars of early modern English studies to explore advanced analytical techniques for engaging with digitized humanities collections.

The Folger Institute proposes to host an NEH institute on "Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics" in summer 2015. This institute will introduce humanities scholars, alt-ac builders, and librarians (both digital and traditional) to an expert visiting faculty-historians of technology, information catalogers and retrievers, computing specialists, linguists, literary historians, visualization theorists, and statisticians-to model best practices for the design and implementation of digital projects. EMDA2015 will be both an expansively defined training institute and an opportunity for scholarly practitioners to consider how new technologies may be shaping the very nature of early modern research. Fifteen participants will have two and a half weeks of intensive application and analysis to answer such questions.
