GC Digital Initiatives invites applications for the GC Digital Research Institute (GC DRI) on June 5-10, 2016 from 9:30-6:00 daily. This program builds on the success of the inaugural GC Digital Research Bootcamp, held in January 2016.
GC DRI offers CUNY graduate students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to develop digital research skills and to connect with others in an interdisciplinary environment. The week will begin with an introduction to the command line, git, Python, and databases for all students; participants will then have the opportunity to choose from a variety of more specific workshops on topics ranging from using APIs to the Natural Language Toolkit to machine learning.
The application will be open until 11:59pm on April 22nd, 2016; however, we recommend that interested participants apply early, as space is limited. Applicants who were waitlisted in January and who expressed interest in being automatically reconsidered need not re-apply; however, we encourage such applicants to fill out the application form again, as some fields have changed.
The GC DRI is sponsored by a CUNY Strategic Initiative Investment Grant and is free of charge. Programming has been developed in collaboration with our partners: Software Carpentry, the New York Public Library, Mozilla Science Lab, Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching, NYC Media Lab, and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute.
