Advanced Digital Humanities Institute at the Folger Institute this June

Please forward this to your colleagues who work in the digital humanities, computer science, and other digital environments on your campus:

“Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics” seeks 15 DH scholars and practitioners to bring their own data sets to the Folger in Washington, DC, in the second half of June 2015.

Under the direction of Jonathan Hope, Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde, visiting faculty and participants will conduct an advanced exploration of data creation and management followed by various forms of hands-on investigation, including text analytics, social network analysis, dimensionality reduction, and research process design. Attention will also be paid to historical reflection on the nature of “exemplarity” claims in humanistic argument.

This institute is supported by a generous grant from the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities. Further details, including the visiting faculty, curriculum, eligibility, and applications materials and guidelines, may be found here:


The deadline is 2 March 2015.

As was the case with the first instance of Early Modern Digital Agendas in July 2013, we look forward to receiving many excellent applications from around the U.S. and abroad!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
