DHWeek is a celebration of the Digital Humanities in New York City and features networking sessions, a DH community meeting, open workshops offered across the city, and social events. This year DHWeek will be held from February 6-10 and we are excited to offer another amazing year of workshops and talks for all skill levels.
To start off the festivities, there will be a kickoff gathering and meeting of the DH community on Monday, February 6th at the Graduate Center, CUNY (365 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY 10016). The day will feature presentations, lightning talks (read more about these and apply here), and discussions with ample opportunities to meet fellow DHers and discover more about their projects and initiatives.
Of particular note are our Birds-of-a-Feather lunch groups, which allow members from the community with shared interests to grab a bite to eat together at one of a myriad of local eating establishments. To sign-up for a lunch during the 2017 Kick-off Gathering with a veteran or a friend, please visit the form here.
And be sure to stick around after for the Digibar! gathering at The Liberty Bar (29 W. 35th St., NY, NY 10001) where we will continue the conversations and celebrate!
The remainder of DH Week is a series of workshops offered by members of the NYCDH community. Last year twenty-four workshops served over 400 participants in a wide range of topics (see the list below). This year we have already surpassed that number of workshops (see the list below) and believe we may serve over 500 registrants this year as NYCDH Week increases in popularity. We are still accepting workshop proposals, so if you think you could offer a workshop, visit this page for more details and provide your information.
This year we are giving out our inaugural NYCDH Award, given to an individual or organization that has made a significant contribution to the digital humanities in the region. Go here For more information about the award and the recently announced recipient of the inaugural award Dr. Stephen Brier of CUNY and the American Social History Project.
