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.

Reminder: CUNY DHI Lightning Talks on Friday 11/19 at 4:30pm

  • Hello all,

    GC Digital Initiatives is excited to host the 7th annual Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) Lightning Talks on November 19, 2021 from 4:30 – 6:00 PM. Each year the event brings together digital humanities projects and scholars across the CUNY system, building a sense of community and awareness about the work taking place within our own network. Sign up here to attend, if you haven’t already!

    If you would like to share your project at the event, and you haven’t yet registered, we will create space for you! Participation is greatly encouraged! Send a message to Lisa Rhody at if you would like to present a lightning talk!

    Lightning Talks, brief 3-minute and 3-slide presentations, create opportunities for students, faculty, and others to present their digital projects, research, and initiatives and to receive feedback. It’s a wonderful way to get the word out about what you do to a wider CUNY community, and to hear about what your colleagues are doing across the CUNY campuses. Following presentations, attendees will have an opportunity to socialize and ask questions to presenters in breakout groups.
