Did you know that Princeton's rich library collections can be used for innovative, data-driven research? Do you want to learn how digital libraries, catalogs, exhibits, and finding aids can be used for text mining, data visualization, mapping, image analysis, audio analysis, and network analysis?
The CDH is hiring! We are looking for a curious, committed, and collegial colleague to join our Development and Design Team as our User Experience Designer. The UX Designer collaborates with faculty, students and library partners using the design process (site flow, wireframes, user research, art design) to ensure that each project reaches its full potential in scholarly and technical innovation.
The following is content associated with a poster presented at Digital Humanities 2018. El texto que sigue forma parte de un póster que nos presentamos en el DH2018: El Archivo de la Prosodia de Princeton: Reconstruir la colección y la interfaz de usuario.
Software development is often an integral aspect of Digital Humanities projects. By working to generalize and build small modules or utilities targeting specific needs rather than large-scale systems, DH software developers have the capacity to generate tools with greater potential for scholarly reuse, which should enable more rapid development on future projects, and allow developers to focus on innovative work.
Members of the CDH staff and affiliated faculty and students are currently at DH2018, the 2018 Digital Humanities Conference taking place in Mexico City this year. Organized by the Association of Digital Humanities Organizations in conjunction with El Colegio de México, La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), and La Red de Humanidades Digitales (RedHD), DH2018 is a space for diversity and dialogue in digital research and teaching across all arts, social sciences and humanities. Read on to find out more about our Princeton CDH presentations and posters!
The Princeton Slavic DH Working Group, which promotes the exploration of digital humanities methods among scholars working in the Slavic, East European and Eurasian fields, has received a generous grant from the Princeton International Fund to send an interdisciplinary group to Germany this summer for a workshop called "Digitally Mapping Eastern Europe."
Come see members of the CDH - Rebecca Munson, Ben Hicks, Nora Benedict, Natalia Ermolaev, Mary Naydan, and Meagan Wilson - present their DH research at Princeton Research Day 2018 on May 10.
We are happy to announce the recipients of the CDH's first Public Digital Humanities Seed Grants. These grants will support innovative projects in the Digital Humanities that bring together Princeton researchers with public partners, local communities, and the general public. These awards build on the CDH's successful 2017-2018 series of events, groups, and workshops on the public digital humanities.
Our graduate students have been working hard this year, and we want to announce their accomplishments from the rooftops! Check out their achievements in this blog post.
As we look forward to the beginning of the Year of Data (AY 2018-2019), we are happy to announce the six successful recipients of CDH's inaugural Dataset Curation Grants. The recipients and their teams will join the CDH community in a year-long conversation about the methodological, cultural and social questions raised by the collection, management and interpretation of data in the humanities. Here is a snapshot of the projects supported by the Dataset Curation Grants:
The Center for Digital Humanities Senior Thesis prize will be awarded to the thesis that best incorporates digital humanities methods or theories into independent work. The thesis itself can be a digital humanities project, or can incorporate digital humanities research into a larger framework.
