MLA Preconvention Workshop: Getting Started in Digital Humanities with DHCommons
full name / name of organization:
DHCommons, NITLE, and the Texas A&M Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture
When and where: This workshop will be held 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. on the first day of the MLA Convention (Thursday, January 5th, 2012). Panelists will hold one-on-one counseling sessions with participants after the workshop.
Sponsors: The workshop is co-sponsored by the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) and the Texas A&M Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture.
Organizers: Rebecca Davis (NITLE), Lisa Spiro (NITLE), Laura Mandell (Texas A&M University), Ryan Cordell (St. Norbert College), and Quinn Dombrowski (University of Chicago)
The workshop will serve as the launch of the Digital Humanities Commons (DHCommons), a new registry designed to match innovative scholars with opportunities for collaboration and expertise, and increase the community of participants engaged with established digital projects, initiatives, and centers.
Scholars must apply in advance for the workshop by either 1) outlining a digital project they would like to undertake or 2) suggesting the type of project on which they would be interested in collaborating. This collaboration may include developing curriculum or pedagogical approaches to the use of the project. The workshop aims to help new digital humanists find exciting work; thus, applications will not require scholars to have a fully-developed project idea. Small group training sessions will be determined by the needs of accepted participants. Apply below.
Review of applications will begin on September 15. The review board will consider applications and accept participants on a rolling basis until the workshop is full. Those whose applications were received by September 15 will be notified by September 30.
