    If you are interested in DH but don’t know where to start, or if you’re just looking to expand your skills, you might be interested in the Digital Humanities Winter Institute ( http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi ), which will be held this year at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities in College Park, Maryland, from Jan. 7-11, 2013 and which will offer courses ranging from “Project Development” to “Data Curation for Humanists” to “Large-Scale Text Analysis with R.”

    Here’s a description of the event:

    “DHWI will provide an opportunity for scholars to learn new skills relevant to different kinds of digital scholarship while mingling with like-minded colleagues in coursework, social events, and lectures during an intensive, week-long event located amid the many attractions of the Washington, D.C. region.

    “Courses are open to all skill levels and will cater to many different interests. For the 2013 Institute we’ve assembled an amazing group of instructors who will teach everything from introductory courses on project development and programming, to intermediate level courses on image analysis, teaching with multimedia, and data curation. DHWI will also feature more technically-advanced courses on text analysis and linked open data. We hope that the curricula we’ve assembled will appeal to graduate students, faculty, librarians, and museum professionals as well as participants from government and non-governmental organizations.”

    The CUNY Graduate Center Digital Initiatives Project (http://gcdi.commons.gc.cuny.edu) is a sponsor of the institute this year, and we’ll be hosting a Graduate Student Mixer as part of the event. However, we also have some free and discounted registrations passes to give out to members of the CUNY community. The passes will enable students to register for free and faculty/staff to register for a discounted rate of $450.

    If you’d like to take advantage of these discounts or if you have any questions, please write to me at mattgold@gmail.com as soon as possible. Please include a one-paragraph description of your interests and attach a CV. Anyone faculty, staff, or grad student from CUNY is eligible.
