Centers for DH Work
From CUNY Academic Commons
- The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Prolifically innovative: originators of the THATCamp movement, One Week | One Tool, and DHNow (see Conferences & Events, Training/Professional Development, and Journals respectively), plus software Zotero, and Omeka.
- Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), "an applied thinktank for the digital humanities," runs a wide range of DH projects, including centerNet (see Organizations/Associations), the Dickinson Electronic Archive, Preserving Virtual Worlds, and MONK. You can subscribe to their blog and "Digital Dialogs" podcasts (@digdialog).
- MIT's Hyperstudio: Digital Humanities at MIT – "explores the potential of new media technologies for the enhancement of education and research in the humanities." Supports a range of projects and conducts research; also hosted a conference on Humanities + Digital Visual Interpretations in May 2010 (videos of presentations are available).
- NYPL Labs, an experimental unit of the New York Public Library, "working at the intersection of collections, technology and the digital humanities."
- South Jersey Center for Digital Humanities @ Stockton College (SJCDH), Pomona, NJ; see also their blog.
- The University of Virginia's Scholars' Lab, and Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH). IATH has produced a wide range of work, such as the Salem Witch Trials Documentary Archive and Transcription project. The Scholars' Lab, directed by Bethany Nowviskie, "is a place where faculty and advanced students in the humanities and social sciences can explore digital resources, find expert help, and collaborate on innovative research projects." It also hosts graduate fellows, whose work can be seen here.
See the listing of DH centers maintained by centerNet. Here, though, are some other key centers to know:
- MATRIX at Michigan State University – center for humanities computing that "houses major digital library repositories including to the African Online Digital Library (AODL), Detroit Public Television's American Black Journal video archives, Historical Voices, and The Quilt Index"; also hosts the international scholarly networking community, H-Net (see Online Communities/Discussion Forums).
- The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) at the University of Nebraska; "advances interdisciplinary research in the humanities by creating unique digital content, developing tools to assist scholars in text analysis and visualization, and encouraging the use (and refinement) of international standards for humanities computing."
- University College London's Centre for Digital Humanities – a wide range of current projects includes The Digital Lives Research Project (a study of personal digital collections), TEI By Example (online training resources for TEI), and the Transcribe Bentham initiative (uses crowdsourcing for transcription of materials).
- The Electronic & Textual Cultures Lab at the University of Victoria, Canada – "our cross-disciplinary work in the areas of data-harvesting, textual content analysis, and document encoding puts us at the forefront of a global conversation about the future of communication"; hosts the annual Digital Humanities Summer Institute (see Training/Professional Development).
- CUNY Graduate Center is an important hub for digital work at CUNY - see its newly-launched website for Digital Initiatives.
- A key resource is the CUNY Graduate Center New Media Lab, which works with Graduate Center and CUNY faculty and doctoral students to conceive and create multimedia projects. "Our goal is to integrate digital media into traditional academic practice, challenging scholars to develop fresh questions in their respective fields using the tools of new technology." The New Media Lab is supervised by the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning, housed at the CUNY Graduate Center, which has done innovative work at the intersection of technology, historical scholarship, and education since 1981.
