Building and Sustaining a Digital Humanities Center taught by Julia Flanders
Digital humanities centers are complex, situated ecosystems that operate within many different kinds of constraints. Starting one is difficult; running one is harder; keeping one going for the long term is hardest of all. This class will look at a range of different types of centers, considering a variety of institutional locations, staffing models, funding approaches, and research agendas. Using real-world cases drawn from the international digital humanities context and from class participants, we’ll investigate a series of practical challenges including communication mechanisms, data management planning, fundraising and fiscal strategies, engaging with students, and space planning. The course will give participants an opportunity to develop concrete plans for their own center (real or hypothetical), as well as a broader familiarity with existing models. Participants should be prepared to think through the practical and intelllectual challenges of establishing and maintaining a digital humanities or digital scholarship center. Familiarity with the general landscape of digital humanities will be assumed and will be important for participation.

CFP: Distance Technologies, Distant Reading, and Literary Pedagogy

CFP: Distance Technologies, Distant Reading, and Literary Pedagogy

Joint Session between CSDH/SCHN and ACCUTE for Congress 2016 

Calgary, Alberta, Canada | May 30 – June 1, 2016

What potential resides in the integration of the digital humanities with distance technologies? How might such an integration facilitate the offering of literature courses online? Although the phenomenon of literature courses delivered entirely or partially with the assistance of web-based technologies has made significant inroads into North American curricula and generated lively debates across social and traditional media, the prospects for teaching literature online still remain uncertain. With the rise in popularity of summer institutes such as DHSI at the University of Victoria, and the recent spread of localized DH institute offerings at Guelph and Dalhousie, the moment seems to have arrived when Canadian institutions might consider how the rise of the digital humanities could contribute to transitioning literature departments toward adopting year-round DH course offerings at the undergraduate and graduate level. How might techniques and technologies of the digital humanities be coupled with literature courses offered online? How productive is the relationship between the practices of “distant reading” and the pedagogy of distance technologies? What kinds of institutional resources are necessary for distance course design and support? What kinds of open-source tools and platforms might be enlisted in such courses? How do we measure the long-term impact of such offerings on enrolments? How do we persuade colleagues and administrators to accept the potential for the move toward dedicated distance course offerings?

Digital Humanities Hackathon on Text Re-Use: ‘Don’t leave your data problems at home!’

27-30 July, 2015

Hosted by the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH), Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany Organised by: Emily Franzini, Greta Franzini and Maria Moritz

The Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities will host a Hackathon targeted at students and researchers with a humanities background who wish to improve their computer skills by working with their own data-set.
