The Digital Humanities Research Institute took place on June 11–24, 2018. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept additional applications at this time.

What is the Digital Humanities Research Institute?


The Digital Humanities Research Institute (DHRI) is a ten-day residential workshop held from June 11–20, 2018, hosted by Graduate Center Digital Initiatives and The Graduate Center, CUNY. Participants will develop core computational research skills through hands-on workshops, explore interdisciplinary digital humanities research and teaching with leading DH scholars, and begin developing versions of the DHRI for their own communities. Over the following academic year, each participant will have access to an online network of peers, as well as 20 hours of consultation from our experienced staff while they lead their own DHRI. Participants will return to New York in June 2019 to report on their experiences and contribute to a guide to leading DHRIs in a variety of institutional contexts.

What to Expect


January 2016 Digital Research Bootcamp

At DHRI you can expect an intensive, community-oriented, and foundational approach to learning technical skills in service of humanities teaching and learning. Through seminar-style discussions with leading scholars in digital humanities, hands-on workshops on core technical competencies, and project development labs, participants will become familiar with working from the command line, collaborating with git, programming with Python, querying structured data, creating maps, and analyzing texts computationally. You will also become part of a growing network of institute leaders by developing your own DHRI based on our open, core curriculum to be led at your home institution or organization.
