Announcing Getting Started in the Digital Humanities: A How-To Guide for Digital Research

DevDH.org is pleased to announce that Jennifer Guiliano and Simon Appleford have signed with John Wiley & Sons Limited to publish Getting Started in the Digital Humanities: A How-To Guide for Digital Research.

Getting Started in the Digital Humanities is a response to the increasing number of first-time digital humanists who are initiating projects, as well as to the growing mandate from Universities and Colleges to undertake digital humanities-based research and teaching. As such, it will form a critical entry point for faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, and other professional staff, searching for an overview of the process of actually doing digital humanities throughout the entire lifecycle of a project, from the initial idea stage through evaluation and wrap up. DevDH.org and Getting Started in the Digital Humanities will offer complementary resources to readers. DevDH.org will continue to provide open access to a wide range of teaching materials, including the presentations, podcasts, and exemplar materials that are currently available, and will be regularly updated. Getting Started in the Digital Humanities, meanwhile, will provide an [...]

Intro to Grant Writing at Digital Humanities 2013

Jennifer Guiliano and Simon Appleford will be co-teaching an Introduction to Grantwriting workshop on at this year's annual Digital Humanities conference in Lincoln, Nebraska. Designed for humanities scholars seeking assistance with their first grant, this workshop introduces participants to best practices in writing and submitting a grant. Participants will be provided with a series of online resources, including presentations, exemplar successful grants, and podcasts to help them complete a first draft of a proposal before they arrive in Lincoln. Those drafts will be circulated to other participants prior to the workshop and will serve as the core basis of our workshop discussions with the anticipation being that each participant will receive clear feedback from other attendees that will aid them in the revision of their proposal. Drafts will be encouraged to emulate the popular National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Start­up Grant competition in order to provide the most flexibility for participants in their digital humanities endeavors. For more information about the conference and to register please visit http://dh2013.unl.edu
