Guidelines for Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities

November 10, 2009 | By Jennifer Serventi

The guidelines for the third round of the Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program are now available! This year's application deadline is February 17, 2010.

These NEH grants support national or regional training programs for scholars and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through these programs, NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars using digital technology in their research and broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities. Institutes may be as short as a few days and held at multiple locations or as long as six weeks at a single site. We're interested in supporting a variety of different professional development models to meet the needs of humanities scholars in the United States.

For information about previously funded Institutes, please visit the ODH Resource Library section of the NEH website or see this recent post about the 2009 awardees.

If your institution has a particular expertise in how to apply digital technology to humanities scholarship, please consider hosting a training institute to share your methodologies and best practices with others.

If you have any questions or wish to chat about your idea, please contact us at odh@neh.gov.
