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.
