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.

Philosophical Leadership Needed for the Future: Digital Humanities Scholars in Museums

  • Hi All,

    Via our twitter account, please see the following call for participation in a panel at “Hacking the Museum: Innovation, Agility & Collaboration” by Neal Stimler, Asscociate Coordinator of Images at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

    Abstract:
    Museum technologists have successfully supported the creation and delivery of content produced by curators, educators and librarians. However, many museum administrators and boards have yet to recognize the importance of scholarly study of their own institutions in the context of an evolving digital society. The support of digital humanities research in the academic and library communities over the last several years has not yet been adopted to the same degree in museums.

    Session Description:
    This crowdsourced panel session will present 1-5 minute video responses from an open call to the community of professionals in archives, libraries, museums and universities as they reflect on the barriers and benefits of implementing digital humanities methodologies in museums.
