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


Python Users\’ Group (PUG) Spring Calendar

  • Hello all,

    We are pleased to announce the Spring calendar for the Python Users\’ Group (PUG for short).

    The Python Users\’ Group (PUG for short) is an open and informal collaborative space for experimentation and exploration with the Python programming language, where we learn, work, chat, snack and have the occasional beer. It is an opportunity for those interested in Python to work together and find support.

    PUG is open to people of all skill levels, disciplines, and backgrounds. Complete beginners are more than welcome here. We are working on introductory exercises for Python. For more information, join us on our commons group, where we share the materials needed for the exercises, answer each other\’s questions and talk about any Python related stuff.

    We will be meeting on Fridays at 3:30pm (please notice the small change of time from Fall), at the Digital Scholarship Lab (room 7414). The first meeting of the Spring is this upcoming Friday, February 7th.

    If you plan to participate, make sure to put the dates below in your calendar, and join the PUG commons. Future announcements and other discussions will happen there so we don\’t spam people\’s e-mails.
