Digital Humanities Summer Institute.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) pairs students with faculty mentors to conduct primary research using digital humanities over the summer. The research groups will meet weekly with each other to report on progress, share challenges and successes, and learn more about DH approaches and projects.
The institute will run for four weeks from May 24 through June 18, 2021.
Faculty should have a research project that includes a significant Digital Humanities component on which students can collaborate. These projects can be anywhere in their lifetime, from the very beginning to an advanced stage. Faculty will meet with their students during the entire duration of the institute and to attend the several joint weekly meetings of the entire group. They will present with their students in the fall. Depending on the project, technical training may be available for both faculty and students.
Students will spend roughly 35 hours a week during the duration of the institute, working on their projects. They will be expected to report to the group at the weekly meetings that will take place during the institute. In the fall, students will present their work. During the institute, students will stay on campus in housing provided by the university, unless they are able to commute regularly to campus.
There are stipends for all participants: faculty & students receive $500 per week for four weeks.
