Early Modern Digital Agendas: Network Analysis

Monday, July 17, 2017 - 12:00am to Friday, July 28, 2017 - 12:00am

We invite applications to attend Early Modern Digital Agendas: Network Analysis, a two-week institute to be be hosted at the Folger Institute, Washington DC, from 17-28 July 2017. This will be the third iteration of Early Modern Digital Agendas, each of which has been generously supported by the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities.

Under the direction of Ruth Ahnert (Queen Mary University of London) and Jonathan Hope (University of Strathclyde), and with an expert visiting faculty, our focus will be on the best practices for building and curating network analysis projects while ensuring that each participant comes away with their own understanding of how such work fits into broader developments within the disciplinary fields of early modern studies and Digital Humanities. The ultimate aim is to give participants the practical skills to use these methods in their own work. The visiting faculty are some of the most exciting people working in this area at the moment from the US, Canada, Ireland, and the UK. 

A program overview may be found here: http://folgerpedia.folger.edu/EMDA_2017 , and application and eligibility guidelines are here: http://folgerpedia.folger.edu/EMDA2017_Application_Guidelines . The twelve individuals selected to participate in this institute will each receive a stipend of $1,750 to help with the costs of travel and accommodation. The application deadline is 1 March 2017.

Please contact institute@folger.edu with any application-related questions.
