The Public Digital Humanities Institute
An institute to support academic & community collaborations in the digital humanities

The Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH) at the University of Kansas (KU) welcomes applications to participate in the NEH-funded Public Digital Humanities Institute, June 6-11, 2022, to receive training and support in public digital humanities and academic-community collaborations.

In order to provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity for academics and their community partners to receive training together, we are inviting participants to attend in teams of two. We will host 24 participants, representing 12 collaborative digital humanities projects between the community and the academy.

This week-long summer institute will be held at the Hall Center for the Humanities on the KU campus, and will provide foundational knowledge, skills and resources to successfully advance 12 public humanities projects, increasing their longevity, visibility, and impact. This will be followed by a year of further online training, support, and discussion, with a final symposium and showcase in June 2023.

The curriculum features a mix of case studies of model projects, technical training and interactive workshops to strengthen relationships & collaborations, create sustainable digital projects, and develop practical knowledge of methods and tools.

The sessions will be led by more than 20 experienced academics and community partners, offering a breadth of complementary skill sets and areas of expertise that will provide participants rich opportunities for learning and engagement.

Applications are due to by Monday, January 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM (US Central Time).
