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.

Digital Public Library of America Launched Today! & Robert Darnton @ GC on April 29th, 2pm

  • Have you seen it yet? What do you think?

    The librarians at Mina Rees are excited about the launch of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA). In addition to coordinating on a regional/hub basis the ingestion of many digital collections, the DPLA hopes to extend libraries’ traditional orientation around access, by using Creative Commons type licensing and providing API‘s so other constituencies can re-display content within their own platforms.
