HathiTrust is a massive digital library accessible to Princeton researchers. It is both a resource for close reading and a trove of textual data. Join us as we explore one use case of HathiTrust, the Princeton Prosody Archive, as well as learn more about the tools and data for computational text analysis provided by HathiTrust and the HathiTrust Research Center.
Each year, the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) welcomes librarians to submit proposals for the Seed Grants. The 2020 deadline is March 13.
Join our three librarians to learn more about how they conceived of their projects, wrote their proposals and implemented their projects:
Steve's project collects memories of public libraries from oral histories of prominent African Americans, which will be subjected to qualitative analysis to identify themes for use in writing a social history.
SEED grants help librarians to think through project ideas that are in the early stages, and also help build connections with faculty who are exploring related topics. CDH staff will also describe how to apply for a Dataset Curation grant, where grantees learn best practices for working with humanities data and publish their own original dataset. Bring your questions and ideas along!
The CDH is seeking full-time faculty research partners for AY 2020-2021. Partners will work with the CDH to produce new tools and/or digital scholarship at the intersection of humanities and information technology.
CDH Dataset Curation Grants familiarize recipients with the analytical and technological practices of working with humanities data. Grantees are taught best practices in data selection, gathering, modeling, cleaning, transformation, and maintenance, with the aim of producing a research dataset suitable for computational analysis. We seek applicants who are interested in participating in the CDH’s ongoing conversation about methodological, cultural, and ethical questions raised by curating humanities data.
Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities explore a field of DH research or professional development during their term. No previous experience with DH or specific technical skills are required. Fellows are expected to be active participants in the life of the CDH by attending events and workshops and reaching out to CDH staff and fellow students as they explore their DH topic. Fellows attend monthly cohort meetings that provide the opportunity to workshop ideas with peers.
