New Scholars Symposium at DH 2016

Call for Applications: 

CHCI and centerNet are collaborating to organize a pre-conference seminar for new scholars interested in the digital humanities. We have arranged for support for up to up to 20 scholars to help with the costs of transportation and accommodation.

The Kule Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Alberta is organizing this seminar on behalf of CHCI and centerNet. Rachel Hendery (Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities, Western Sydney University) and Geoffrey Rockwell (Director, Kule Institute for Advanced Study, University of Alberta, Canada) will convene the New Scholars Seminar.

What is the New Scholars Seminar?

The NSS is an unconference event on Sunday 10th July preceding the DH2016 conference. The event is for new scholars to meet and develop research collaborations in the digital humanities. The agenda for the unconference events will be set by the participants.  (See this <http://chcinetwork.org/news/new-scholars%E2%80%99-seminar-nss-university-western-sydney <http://chcinetwork.org/news/new-scholars%E2%80%99-seminar-nss-university-western-sydney>> and related blog posts on last year's NSS at DH2015 in Sydney.)

Who would participate?

For the purposes of this seminar a "new scholar" is defined as someone who is either a graduate student or someone who has received their PhD within the last 5 years (or longer if a case is made for career interruption). Postdoctoral fellows and people in alternative academic positions are welcome to apply.

Participation will be by reviewed application and accommodation/travel support will be limited to 20 people, who must be affiliated with a CHCI or centerNet member organization. 

How does one apply?

Applications are due by April 15. Applications include i) a Statement of Research that outlines your research interests in digital humanities; ii) a letter of support from a CHCI centre/institute director, including a statement specifying the matching funds the centre will offer to supplement the CHCI and centerNet contributions toward the applicant’s trip; and iii) a short two-page CV. Applications should be sent to the Kule Institute for Advanced Study <kias at ualberta.ca> at the University of Alberta.

What sort of support will be provided?

CHCI and centerNet have negotiated a support package for participants, requiring matching support from the applicant’s home institution.

For participants from outside Europe:

	• CHCI will provide $750 USD  in support of up to 10 participants outside Europe who are sponsored by CHCI institutes. centerNet will provide a further $250 USD in support for these participants.
	• The sponsoring CHCI institutes are expected to provide matching support to the applicants if they are accepted.
Participants from within Europe will receive the following support:

	• CHCI will provide $250 USD. CenterNet will provide a further $100 USD in support for these participants.
	• The sponsoring CHCI institutes are expected to provide matching support to the applicants if they are accepted.
For the purposes of the award, Europe is defined as any country within Continental Europe, and the United Kingdom and Ireland.

New Scholars Seminar Programme:

The programme for the seminar will be developed by the participants once accepted and coordinated by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study. The idea is to empower new scholars to develop their own research directions and collaborations. There will therefore be two phases:

	• Before the on site portion of the Seminar there will be an online component. Participants will share their Statements and negotiate what will happen during the seminar. We expect there will be clusters of research interests that emerge which can form the intellectual backbone of the Seminar. KIAS will coordinate an online conversation that will encourage leadership to emerge from within the group so that the actual structure of the on site days will be primarily organized by the participants.
	• The on site portion of the Seminar will take place on 10th July. The program will include short presentations by participants addressing issues identified in online discussion and unconference activities.
