U-Denver NEH Institute for Digital Humanities: 12/15/10

University of Denver’s Digital Media Studies Program is accepting applications for fellowships in the 2011-2012 Institute for the Digital Humanities, a program funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Proposals Due December 15, 2010: Email proposals to adrienne.russell@du.edu and lynn.clark@du.edu.

The University of Denver’s Institute for the Digital Humanities will offer 12 visiting scholars the opportunity to explore the benefits of incorporating interactive media into interdisciplinary collaboration and public dissemination of research. Fellows will be given training and mentoring in the use of digital tools for data analysis and presentation, social collaboration and authorship, and/or research production and dissemination in relation to projects of their own choosing.

Fellowships will be awarded to12 national scholars and 8 local scholars. Applicants must have completed candidacy into their doctoral programs or have received their PhD. MFAs who have teaching or research positions are also eligible. Proposals can be submitted from individuals or from teams of scholars. Fellows will work together in theme-based groups to envision, execute, and produce research projects using digital tools to facilitate collaboration and to create representations of their work. We particularly welcome proposals from scholars interested in working with rich media formats such as video, photography, sound, graphics, and various forms of interactivity and from scholars working on engaged scholarship, whose work is both about public concerns and is intended for consumption and use by members of the public. During the institute meetings, fellows will explore central methods in the digital humanities and in multimedia authorship, including gaming, data visualization, digital archives/electronic journals, and audio and visual production.

This is a non-residential fellowship program, although participation is required in two on-campus events at the beginning (June 2011) and end (September 2012) of the 18-month fellowship period, as well as in one video teleconference at the fellowship’s midpoint (December 2011). Fellowships cover the cost of the workshops and travel, room and board.

The interdisciplinary Digital Media Studies program at the University of Denver is renowned for innovative teaching, scholarship, and creative work in the digital humanities, with particular areas of strength in public good and in internationalization efforts. Established in 1997, the Digital Media Studies program is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. Housed in the Department of Media, Film & Journalism Studies (MFJS), the program is a partnership among MFJS and Art & Art History and offers courses at the graduate and undergraduate level in cutting-edge design and production of multimedia/digital media while investigating social, political, legal, cultural and individual issues relating to their uses. The program has a history of building dialogue between scholars and the public, such as through its Digital Media Outreach Center, its collaboration with the University’s Estlow International Center for Journalism and New Media, and its work with the University’s Center for Civic Engagement and Service Learning.
