The Digital Humanities has a diverse and engaged community representing humanities, computing, information science, librarianship, cultural heritage work. Through our collaboration with DSAH and AADHum, MITH is developing resources and materials to enhance teaching with digital tools. We are creating MITH courses focused on critical engagement with digital tools and methods. With these efforts, MITH is expanding our support for faculty and students engaged in teaching, learning, and research.
We invite you to join our community of scholars, students, researchers, and innovators as we explore the intersections of computing and the humanities.
AADHum/MITH Digital Research Working Group
Mondays · 2:00 – 3:30 pm
A weekly working group for scholars working at the intersection of Black Studies and Digital Humanities co-hosted by AADHum and MITH. The working group offers a regular forum for discussing digital works-in-progress with peers and getting help with digital approaches from AADHum and MITH staff. The group meets most Mondays during the semester between 2:00 – 3:30 pm at MITH.
MITH/DSAH Writing Group
Thursdays · 1:00 – 4:00 pm
The MITH/DSAH writing group is a space for people to work together and exchange feedback on their writing projects concerning critical digital studies. The group meets every Thursday between 1:00 – 4:00 pm at MITH and will incorporate both writing sessions, in which participants can keep each other accountable for producing work, and peer-review sessions, for exchanging substantial feedback on work in progress.
MITH supports the work of emerging undergraduate digital humanities scholars through internships. With the guidance of MITH staff, interns have the time and mentorship to learn new skills as they contribute to ongoing MITH projects. Interns will explore advanced applied computational humanities, and contribute to the intellectual programming of MITH.
At present, MITH offers one fellowship opportunity, the Winnemore Digital Humanities Dissertation Fellowship Program, which is awarded periodically. The Clara and Robert Vambery Distinguished Professor of Comparative Studies award is offered by the Comparative Literature Department, with MITH as a collaborator. Those candidates selected for the Vambery Distinguished Professorship who propose projects involving digital media are eligible to become MITH Vambery Fellows.
