NYCDH is happy to announce the 7th Annual NYCDH Week, February 8-12, 2021. This year’s format is fully online and will continue to do what it has done for the past six years: Bring together individuals across the region who are interested in digital humanities. At NYCDH Week, you can learn new techniques and skills, discover and share DH projects from across the city, and connect with a vibrant and diverse community of scholars and practitioners.
Join us for the Kickoff Day!
The theme of NYCDH Week 2021 is Care and Repair. We will focus attention on NYCDH as a community of digital humanities practice impacted by the past year. NYCDH week will be organized to provide spaces for caring for one another and developing practices of repair at the personal and institutional level. We look to support each other in ensuring that universities, cultural heritage institutions, and anywhere else DH work is being done, prioritizes preparing students to demonstrate leadership as they engage with social, political, and ethical issues.
This year’s kickoff ceremony will feature a keynote conversation between two members of our NYC DH community, Madiha Zahrah Choksi, Research and Learning Technologies Librarian at Columbia University, and Lisa Rhody, Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.
Take part in one of our working sessions
To engage with our theme of Care and Repair in an action-oriented way, this year at NYCDH Week we will be hosting a series of working group sessions. These workshops will focus on topics relevant to changing conditions both within and outside the academy, and give us an opportunity to come up with strategies and tactics to help care for our communities and repair our institutions.
The goal for each session will be to work collaboratively to produce a working document of tactics and resources that address the session topic and that can subsequently be shared with the NYCDH Community. Each session will run from 4:30-6:00pm and be facilitated by a member of the NYCDH Steering Committee.
Sign up for one of the many free, virtual workshops offered by NYC DH members
Our community has come together to create a collection of 28 workshops, demos, and events (with more to come!) covering a wide range of topics. From mapping to network analysis to podcasting to open source scholarship, we’ve got you covered.
