Lexicon of DH 2016 | GC Digital Fellows

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Across universities and conferences, even the LA Review of Books, the question seems to come up again and again: what is/are digital humanities? The understanding of what digital work in the humanities is remains in flux and with good reason — the tools and terms are in development, and development is part of the project of DH. It can be overwhelming to address the implementation of technical tools as a theoretical practice of scholarship. It can be destabilizing to critically assess the digital tools that undergird even the most seemingly traditional modes of scholarship. There are people here to help.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 When I first began DH Praxis at the Graduate Center in 2014, I wrote a blog post about what I feared, though, hoped DH might mean. In the past two years, I have learned a dizzying amount about this community and conversation. Last year, Mary Catherine Kinniburgh with Patrick Sweeney introduced a workshop on the Lexicon of DH to much applause (read her recap here, and a review from a participant). I am looking forward to reprising the workshop (Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 in Room 6421).

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
