With funding from the NEH program Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, the Digital Media Studies Program at the University of Denver is pleased to announce their 2011-2012 Institute for the Digital Humanities. This is a non-residential fellowship program, although participation is required in two on-campus events at the beginning (June 2011) and end (September 2012) of the 18-month project period, as well as in one video teleconference at the project's midpoint (December 2011).
Fellows will work together in groups to plan, execute, and produce research projects using digital tools to facilitate collaboration and to create representations of their work. Particularly welcome are applications from scholars interested in working with rich media formats such as video, photography, sound, graphics, and various forms of interactivity and from scholars working on engaged scholarship, whose work is both about public concerns and is intended for consumption and use by members of the public. During the institute meetings, fellows will explore central methods in the digital humanities and in multimedia authorship, including gaming, data visualization, digital archives/electronic journals, and audio and visual production.
More information and application instructions can be found on the Institute’s Call for Proposals Website.
