NYCDH Week is Less Than a Month Away!

We're sharing the following message on behalf of NYCDH.

The 2nd Annual NYCDH Week is coming to an institution near you from February 6-10. Filled with talks, roundtables, networking, and probably the most impressive array of FREE workshops known to DH-kind, NYCDH Week gives individuals across the region an opportunity to learn new techniques and skills, meet new people, and make new connections.

Time to Start Registering!
Registration for the NYCDH Week 2017 Kickoff Gathering and all of the Workshops is now open! Register for any event by using the RSVP tool at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar of each event page.

Dr. Stephen Brier to Receive Inaugural NYCDH Award
We are proud to announce that Dr. Stephen Brier of the CUNY Graduate Center and American Social History Project will be the recipient of the inaugural NYCDH Award. Dr. Brier’s career at CUNY and ASHP has included innovations in new media and public history, the development of important programs in digital pedagogy and humanities, and an unparalleled history of mentoring young scholars and building communities across the region. Dr. Brier will be receiving the first NYCDH Award and giving a keynote speech to conclude our NYCDH Week 2017 Kickoff Gathering. Please join us in honoring Dr. Brier’s impressive contributions to the NYCDH community.

Birds-of-a-Feather Lunches
Our kick-off event will also for the first time include community lunches built around common interests. During lunch, DHWeek participants are encouraged to join a bird-of-a-feather group at one of a myriad of local eating establishments. The form to sign-up for a lunch with a veteran or a friend can be found here.

Last Call to Propose a Workshop!
During NYCDH Week graduate students, librarians, faculty, museum workers, independent scholars, tech companies and others will be offering FREE workshops at institutions across the city. These events are free and open to everyone with an interest in the digital humanities.

Are you interested in teaching a workshop? There are over two dozen workshops already planned (view the list of workshops at the DH Week website), but there is still time to get in on the fun! The deadline to propose a workshop has been extended to January 20. The proposal form can be found here.
