Announcing NYCDH Week 2019: Call for Workshops

Monday, February 4, 2019 (All day) to Friday, February 8, 2019 (All day)

NYCDH is happy to announce the 4th Annual NYCDH Week, February 4-8, 2019. Taking place at institutions throughout New York City, NYCDH Week gives individuals across the region who are interested in digital humanities an opportunity to learn new techniques and skills, hear about DH projects from across the city, and become part of a vibrant and diverse community of scholars and practitioners.

Join us for the Kickoff Day!
Following last year’s highly successful event, NYCDH Week 2019 begins on February 4 with a kickoff gathering at Lincoln Center Campus (113 W. 60th St., 12th Floor). This year’s theme is Information and Democracy. This year’s keynote speaker will be data journalist Meredith Broussard, assistant professor of journalism at New York University and author of Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World. The day-long event features speakers, round tables, lightning talks and networking sessions. The rest of the week will consist of a diverse selection of free workshops hosted at a wide range of institutions across the city, including:

Bard Graduate Center, Columbia University, CUNY Graduate Center, Fordham University, METRO NYC, New York Public Library, NYU, Pace University, Pratt Institute, and The Frick Collection.
