Digital Humanities Initiative

The CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative (CUNY DHI), launched in Fall 2010, aims to build connections and community among those at CUNY who are applying digital technologies to scholarship and pedagogy in the humanities. All are welcome: faculty, students, and technologists, experienced practitioners and beginning DHers, enthusiasts and skeptics.

We meet regularly on- and offline to explore key topics in the Digital Humanities, and share our work, questions, and concerns. See our blog for more information on upcoming events (it’s also where we present our group’s work to a wider audience). Help edit the CUNY Digital Humanities Resource Guide, our first group project. And, of course, join the conversation on the Forum.

Call for workshops on digital literacies and computing for k-12

  • Call for workshops!

    A new initiative at the City University of New York called Computing Integration in Teacher Education (CITE) is looking for a diverse group of organizations and individuals to conduct VIRTUAL workshops with CUNY education faculty around computing and digital literacies for preK-12-aged young people.

    More details on this form.

    At minimum, workshop facilitators will be assigned a 2-hour block on a Tuesday or Wednesday during the last three weeks of July, but we also welcome proposals that engage participants through a variety of formats:

    A one-off 2-hour workshop or series of 2 shorter workshops

    A synchronous workshop with asynchronous post-work for faculty to complete independently

    One-on-one / small group design support

    Compensation is a stipend between $500-1000 depending on the budget you propose.

    Please fill out this form to propose your workshop by Friday, June 10 at 5pm. Accepted workshop facilitators will be notified by June 17.

    We do not expect participating organizations or individuals to generate new content so much as showcase computing and  digital literacies activities you have already designed and/or implemented in schools, out-of-school time programs, and/or schools of education.

    Questions and comments can be directed to: Sara Vogel, Associate Director, CITE (sara.vogel@cuny.edu) or Aankit Patel, Director of STEM Education (aankit.patel@cuny.edu).

    Hope to see your proposal!
