NYCDH is happy to announce the 2nd Annual NYCDH Week, held February 6-10, 2017. Taking place at institutions throughout the city, NYCDH Week gives individuals across the region who are interested in digital humanities an opportunity to learn new techniques and skills, meet new people, and make new connections.
Following last year’s highly successful inaugural event, NYCDH Week 2017 begins on February 6 with a kickoff gathering at the CUNY Graduate Center. The day-long event features speakers, round tables, lightning talks and networking sessions. The rest of the week will consist of a diverse selection of free workshops hosted at a wide range of institutions across the city, including:
Bard Graduate Center, Columbia University, CUNY Graduate Center, Fordham University, New York Public Library, NYU, Pratt Institute, and Rhizome.
Inaugural NYCDH Award
We are also happy to announce the inaugural NYCDH Award. This award will be given to an individual who has made a significant contribution to digital humanities in the region. The NYCDH Award winner will make the keynote speech at the kickoff gathering. Nominations are open to all, with the final selection made by the NYCDH Steering Committee. All nominations must be made by end of day, on December 21. If you would like to make a nomination please submit your name on this form.
NYCDH Week’s series of wide-ranging workshops are open to everyone. They are FREE and offered across the city. Workshops are made possible by members of the NYCDH community who are willing to offer their time to teach and help organize each session.
