  • Event: Digitorium Digital Humanities Conference

    When: Thursday, April 9th – Saturday, April 11th, 2015

    Where: University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL

    We are delighted to invite proposals for Digitorium 2015, the inaugural Digital Humanities conference at the University of Alabama. We seek proposals on Digital Humanities work from researchers, practitioners, and graduate students which showcase innovative ways in which digital methods have brought scholarship and scholarly communities to life, whether locally or globally. Our plenary speakers Professor Elizabeth Maddock Dillon (Northeastern University) and Professor David Lee Miller (University of South Carolina) will anchor our program of events, reflecting our main focus on digital methods and the communities which these can forge, as well as our subject-specific interests in American studies and Early Modern studies. We especially welcome proposals which discuss the use of digital methods and their novel results for research, pedagogy, and public scholarship.

  • Matthew K. Gold started the topic Job: Instructional Technologist and Designer, Bucknell in the forum Group logo of Digital Humanities InitiativeDigital Humanities Initiative via email 2 months, 1 week ago

    Please see the job opportunity below

    Bucknell University has just opened a search for an Instructional Designer
    and Technologist.

    Full job description and application information: http://goo.gl/tqd3PB
    Library and IT at Bucknell: http://www.bucknell.edu/libraryit
    Instructional Technology: http://www.bucknell.edu/itec

    Bucknell is seeking a well-qualified, experienced Instructional
    Technologist and Designer dedicated to furthering the meaningful
    integration of technology, teaching and learning in a liberal arts
    university or college setting. The ideal Instructional Technologist and
    Designer (ITD) candidate will have a deep awareness of and direct
    experience with applying best-practice instructional design principles in a
    higher education context, and in particular an expertise in bringing
    pedagogically-informed strategies and technologies to his/her work with
    faculty, developing well thought-out methods for understanding both the
    current needs of students and the end goals of instruction. In addition,
    the successful ITD will have a deep understanding of the critical role that
    assessment plays in this work and will have the ability to translate
    assessment theory into practice. The ITD will partner with faculty across
    all disciplines to facilitate innovative course development and
    redevelopment at the University.

    The ten-member Instructional Technology team and the division of Library
    and Information Technology maintain a highly collaborative work environment
    and as such we anticipate hiring an ITD who will embrace hard work,
    dedication, and laughter while working in a team-oriented group. In
    addition, we seek a colleague who is naturally curious, possesses a
    willingness to embrace change, and relishes tinkering with new
    technologies. The ideal candidate’s experience and expertise will
    contribute to Bucknell’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

    Bucknell University is a private, highly ranked, national liberal arts
    institution that also offers strong professional programs in engineering,
    business, education, and music. Located in Central Pennsylvania along the
    Susquehanna River, Bucknell is nestled in the Borough of Lewisburg, an
    appealing Victorian-style town ranked as one of America’s best small towns.
    Lewisburg and the surrounding region offer a unique combination of outdoor
    recreation opportunities, small-town charm, and appealing amenities such as
    restaurants, art galleries, an art deco theater, museums, and boutiques. In
    addition to the many cultural and athletic events offered by the University
    and the Borough, the surrounding region offers outstanding schools, medical
    facilities, and an affordable cost of living. For those who crave the city,
    Bucknell is within an easy three-hour drive to Philadelphia, New York,
    Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

    Application review will begin on January 15, 2015.

  • Hi Everyone,

    Graduate Center Digital Initiatives is a sponsor of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute in 2015 at the University of Victoria (http://dhsi.org). It’s a great way to spend some intensive time learning DH techniques from some of the leading practitioners in the field.

    As part of our institutional sponsorship, we can offer reduced registration costs for members of the CUNY DHI community. Please follow these directions if you are interested:

    Here’s how partner/sponsor registration works:

    Follow the link from http://dhsi.org/registration.html to the registration system for the DHSI week you’d like.

    Note: In response to requests from attendees who indicated they would like to take more than one course per DHSI offering, this year we have a core DHSI week (8-12 June) and an additional week of additional courses and activities on each side of it (1-5 and 15-19 June). Our schedule, at http://dhsi.org/schedule.php, lays out the general flow of the time, and the courses are listed at http://dhsi.org/courses.php.

    Each participant, or someone representing the participant, registers by [1] entering the participant’s email address, [2] selecting a course, and (once a course is selected) [3] using a optional discount code. For sponsors, we’ve set up discount codes for you and your colleagues to use – both for the 5 spots that come with your sponsorship (as well as for spots over and above those 5, for which we will invoice you later), and for those that your colleagues might register for directly to receive the sponsorship tuition discount.

    For sponsor discounted registration rates: The codes that provide you and your colleagues with the discounted registration rates for sponsors are listed at http://dhsi.org/registration.html#SponsorRegistration. Pointing your colleagues to this page will provide them with the information they need to register at discounted rates.
