Further Expanding Digital Humanities Communities of Practice


City University of New York, New York City





The goal of the Further Expanding Digital Humanities Communities of Practice institute is to train participants in core digital methods and digital project development. Topics to be covered include working from the command line, collaborating with git, programming with Python, querying structured data, creating maps, and analyzing texts computationally. The institute participants will gather at a 10-day in-person institute in summer 2020, where they will receive intensive training on foundational digital methods; then develop their own local digital humanities research institutes; and finally prepare an evaluative white paper in summer 2021. Participants will be connected with mentors and a network of community leaders to support professional growth and expand access to digital humanities training.
