Registration is now open for the Fall 2019 New York Digital Humanities Conference "Sustaining Digital Projects, Sustaining Careers" on October 26, 2019.
The goals of this event are to bring together digital humanities and digital scholarship researchers, technologists, teachers, librarians, and independent scholars with the intention of discussing two interrelated subjects: how to sustain digital humanities work beyond the initial conception and implementation of a digital project, and how to sustain a career in the digital humanities. We expect that this event will be an intensive day of discussion and provide a forum to share expertise and strategically plan for capacity-building on the following topics: sustaining digital humanities projects, communicating digital research within and outside the academy, participating in peer-review of digital projects, and demonstrating the scholarly and pedagogical impact of DH projects through the promotion and tenure process. Overall, the event seeks to build and support a communication network of DH scholars across the SUNY system and other New York institutions of higher education. We also invite participation from institutions beyond New York state, but especially those bordering the state, such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ontario, and beyond.
This all-day conference will be held at SUNY Geneseo in Geneseo, NY. The days events feature two workshops, roundtables, lightning talks, and a keynote by Dr. Matthew K. Gold, Associate Professor of English and Digital Humanities at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
Registration is free and open to all with lunch and coffee provided.
