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.

Tonight, 5/15: Two MA in DH and MS in Data Vis Events

  • Hi all,

    The MA Program in Digital Humanities and the MS Program in Data Analysis and Visualization are holding two in person events tonight, May 15th, that may be of interest. Feel free to distribute.

    The first event is a roundtable discussion that concludes our Spring “Methods of Text Analysis” course; the second event is a poster-style session, with students presenting projects from our “Visualization and Design” course.

    Feminist Text Analysis Roundtable
    Monday, May 15th, 4:15 – 6:15 PM
    ROOM 9205
    Description: During the Spring 2023 semester, students in the Methods of Text Analysis class have considered whether or not there is or can be such a thing as feminist text analysis. Alternatively, is feminism—and other forms of cultural critique—always an intervention or response? This roundtable is the culminating event for the Methods of Text Analysis class in which students will present short 5-minute provocations intended to open up to larger group discussion.

    Visualization and Design Final Review
    Monday, May 15th, 6:30 – 8:25 PM
    ROOMS C201-C202
    Description: This year’s projects are extremely compelling. Multiple projects grapple with the challenge of making qualitative, textured data visible and inviting readers to see data as both an abstraction and concrete experience. Others try to make sense of our cultural moment by investigating book bans, gaming & anxiety, and religion. Still others focus on New York City, its hospitals, taxis, and people.

    Best,
    Jason
