Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics
The Folger Library
Washington, DC
June 2015

Please forward this opportunity to your colleagues, advanced graduate students, and others who work in the digital humanities, computer science, and digital environments on campuses and elsewhere. Encourage them to apply for the upcoming institute at the Folger:

"Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics" seeks 15 DH scholars and practitioners to bring their own data sets to the Folger in Washington, DC, in the second half of June 2015.

Under the direction of Jonathan Hope, Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde, visiting faculty and participants will conduct an advanced exploration of data creation and management followed by various forms of hands-on investigation, including text analytics, social network analysis, dimensionality reduction, and research process design. Attention will also be paid to the historical nature of "exemplarity" claims in humanistic argument.

This institute is supported by a generous grant from the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities to the Folger Institute. Further details, including the visiting faculty, curriculum, eligibility, and application materials and guidelines, may be found here:


The deadline is 2 March 2015.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.
