Applications Open for Doing Digital History, NEH Summer Institute

Join us August 4-15, 2014 for Doing Digital History, a summer institute for mid-career American historians, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Digital Humanities, run by RRCHNM faculty and visiting instructors.

Doing Digital History is designed to fill a much-needed gap for 25 established historians who need instruction and a professional learning community to engage with new media methods and tools.

We seek applications from a diverse pool of faculty, public historians, archivists, librarians, museum professionals, and independent scholars specializing in US history, who have had very limited or no training in using digital methods and tools, or in computing, and who lack a supportive digital community at their home institutions.

Take a peek at our proposed schedule, and apply today. Applications will be open until March 15, 2014.
