NEH Funds RRCHNM’s “Doing Digital History” Summer Institute

The National Endowment for the Humanities, Office of Digital Humanities awarded the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media one of three grants in their Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program. With this generous support, the Public Projects division will organize and host, “Doing Digital History: An Institute for Mid-Career American Historians” during the summer of 2014.

“Doing Digital History” begins to fill a much-needed gap for established historians who need instruction and a professional learning community to engage with new media methods and tools. We will seek applications from historians 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.

NEH IADTH grants support a wide range of training programs for scholars and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities. Through these programs, NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars using digital technology in their research and to broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology tools and methodologies relevant to the humanities.

Planning for “Doing Digital History” will commence this fall, and a call for applications will be announced in early 2014. Watch the RRCHNM blog, @chnm Twitter account, and major H-Net listservs for the call for applications.

In the meantime, don’t forget to follow along with the progress of this week’s One Week | One Tool IADTH on twittter (#owot).
