Call for Applicants: Kaplan Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop

The Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities invites you to apply to the Graduate Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop (DHPW) for 2019–20. 

 This workshop is a year-long, collaborative learning experience dedicated to supporting graduate students in the development of digital humanities skills and pedagogical practices. The DHPW will consist of critical discussions on pedagogy, hands-on tool learning, presentations from guest faculty speakers, and course conceptualization. Over the course of the year, participants will create assignments using digital platforms and, by year’s end, will have completed the design of a course syllabus. Bringing together up to 12 graduate students, the DHPW is open to all people regardless of previous experience with the digital humanities. Confirmed speakers include:

 Professor Lori Kido Lopez, whose book Asian American Media Activism: Fighting for Cultural Citizenship (2016, NYU Press) examines the efforts of Asian Americans to impact the way that their community has been represented in mainstream media, will be here on Thursday, October 24 to talk about teaching race and gender in media studies classes. 

Professor Kim Gallon, founder and director of the Black Press Research Collective, will be here Thursday, November 22 to present on black digital humanities in the classroom.

The DHPW will convene over the course of the year, on the following days from 12:00 - 2:00 pm (please carefully review the days):
