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.

Fwd: [DHSI] Opportunity: American Quarterly Digital Projects Review Editor

    Subject: [DHSI] Opportunity: American Quarterly Digital Projects Review
    Editor
    To: Institute@lists.uvic.ca <institute@lists.uvic.ca>

    Please consider nominating yourself or a colleague to be a Digital Projects
    Review Editor for the *American Quarterly*. Digital project reviews carry
    on the traditions and guidelines of book reviewing in the *American
    Quarterly*, including the careful selection of projects based on the
    importance of relevance of their topics, methods, and theories for scholars
    working within the American studies tradition. There are currently two open
    positions.

    Responsibilities include:

    – Identifying reviewers and projects, and working with the existing list of
    both

    – Communicating with reviewers about guidelines, deadlines, and process

    – Communicating with *AQ* editors about upcoming reviews for issues

    – Reviewing and editing the project reviews, and sending them back to
    authors for revisions

    The Digital Projects Review Editors will also have the opportunity to
    review and revise the digital project guidelines to acknowledge that
    digital scholarship is increasingly inseparable from social concerns such
    as race, gender, class, ability, nationality and colonialism.

    This is a 3-year term. Full review guidelines can be found here:

    In the past, the time commitment has been minimal–a few hours per month.

    Please send nominations (names and full CVs) to Jennifer Ross (
    jennifern.ross@utoronto.ca) by May 15, 2024*.*

    All the best,

    Jennifer Ross

    *I wish to acknowledge the land on which the University of Toronto
    operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the
    Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this
    meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across
    Turtle Island and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work on this
    land.*
