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.

    “Dear NYC-DH’ers,

    Our Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities & The Center for
    International History invite you to:

    Nepal Mapathon for Earthquake Relief
    May 7, 10-3 PM at Butler Library 208B (Studio@Butler)

    Come help with relief efforts on the ground in Nepal by contributing your
    time to open-source mapping

    Following the recent earthquake, people around the world are using the
    OpenStreetMap platform to give their time to earthquake relief efforts.
    Kathmandu Living Labs, an organization in Nepal, has been working with
    relief organizations in urban and rural areas and updating mapping tasks on
    the OSM Tasking Manager
    according to relief needs. During the mapathon, we will teach people how to
    help with these relief efforts through mapping and we will map together.

    No mapping experience necessary. No knowledge of local terrain is
    necessary. Come any time during the day.

    Please bring your laptop. RSVP led2113@columbia.edu.
