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

  • Dear Digital GC,

    Check out the new Digital Fellows blog post outlining the offerings of the GC Digital Initiatives. This post reviews information about the GC Digital Initiatives, upcoming workshops, and useful online resources. The start of any semester can be a struggle as we try to get our feet back underneath us and our work done efficiently. The spring term can feel like a bit of an avalanche and it’s hard to know what else is available and where. The GC Digital Initiatives are here for you! Join the GCDI Group on the Commons for regular updates, follow us on Twitter (@Digital_Fellows@cunygcdi), tune in to your department listservs, check the workshop calendar, and visit GCDI on the Academic Commons. It’s always good to know what’s going on with the GCDI, because you, yes you, are the digital GC.

    The GCDI offers different types of support for digital scholarship from the weeklong skill introduction at the GC Digital Research Institute to evening workshops to afternoon skill share lunch conversations, to one-on-on consultation for faculty and students. Whether you have participated in our workshops before or your idea of the perfect software is a paperback edition, there is something for you! Our offerings are open to scholars at all levels of digital experience and at all stages of graduate research. Whether you are digitally driven, curious, or defiant, we are prepared to help.
