New Media Lab

THE NEW MEDIA LAB (NML) assists City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center faculty and doctoral students from a variety of academic disciplines to create multimedia projects based on their own scholarly research. Our goal is to integrate new media into traditional academic practice, challenging scholars to develop fresh questions in their respective fields using the tools of new technology. The NML is committed to a vision of new technology based on open access to ideas, tools, and resources.

With ongoing support from CUNY, the New Media Lab has become a dynamic environment in which projects funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Old York Library Foundation, and other private and public sources demonstrate new approaches and methods of merging digital media, scholarship, and learning.

Located in room 7388.01 at the CUNY Graduate Center and run under the auspices of the Center for Media and Learning / American Social History Project, NML researchers:

work across academic disciplines to produce scholarly digital media projects;

analyze Internet usage in the educational, social, and commercial sectors;

construct 3-D environments that explore ways of visualizing the arts, humanities, and sciences

digitally archive and analyze a wide range of data
participate in public programs that address the critical intersection of knowledge and technology

    The GC Digital Showcase is an annual event featuring interdisciplinary digital scholarship produced by graduate students, digital fellows, working groups, classes, and programs across The Graduate Center, CUNY. We invite you to share your work with the Digital GC community and to forge new connections with other students, faculty, administrators, and staff. For the second year, GC Digital Initiatives will host this virtual event via Zoom, which will offer a supportive and generative space to present and to receive feedback about your work.

    All students enrolled at the Graduate Center are invited to submit a proposal and can submit multiple proposals for multiple projects, if applicable. Presentations will be 3 minutes long, and presenters can submit up to 3 slides in advance. Projects presentations can represent work at any stage of development from proposal through completion.

    What kinds of projects do students typically present? Some projects in the past have included: digital archives, data analysis and visualization, mapping projects, open educational resources, digital tools to support pedagogy, websites, digital editions, participatory research projects that use digital tools, and much more.

    The event will begin with a showcase of digital projects from the MA in Digital Humanities Praxis seminar class, followed by a five minute intermission and then series of 3-minute and 3-slide presentations and with a brief discussion to follow.

    If you would like to share your project, please submit your proposal by April 30, 2021 to http://cuny.is/showcase-cfp21.
