Sign Up for NEH-Funded Institute "Evaluating Digital Scholarship"

October 19, 2010 | By Jennifer Serventi

With funding from the NEH program Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, in summer 2011 the University of Virginia and NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-century Electronic Scholarship) will be hosting the first of two summer institutes on evaluating digital scholarship. The institute will be held May 30 to June 3, 2011 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The 2011 Institute will be focused on five broad aspects of humanities scholarship, with attention given to the specifics of literary studies: 1. conceptualization, 2. evidence and discovery, 3. remediation, 4. interpretation, and 5. communication. Applications are particularly encouraged from literary scholars involved with sophisticated digital projects and administrative or institutional leaders engaged with policies related to peer-review as well as promotion and tenure.

Applications are due December 1, 2010. More information and application instructions can be found on the Institute’s Call for Participants website.
