CUNY DHI Lighting Talks Switch to Virtual Format

On 04, Apr 2023 | In Uncategorized | By Lisa Marie Rhody

Today at 5:30 p.m. is our annual CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative Lightning Talk event. Originally, it was scheduled to be held as a hybrid event with in-person and remote presentations. However, we have had to make a last-minute decision to switch to an online format.

We hope that if you were planning to join us that you will continue to do so remotely. We will be sending out the Zoom link 30 minutes prior to the event, so if you had not already registered, you are able to do so until 5 p.m. tonight at https://cuny.is/dhi23-register.

Tonight’s event will be slightly less formal than it has been in the past, so if you have not had an opportunity to sign up to present but would like to do so, we can accommodate. You can either let us know when you register or reach out through a Zoom chat message to either Zach Lloyd or myself.

Again, apologies for the last minute change. You can see the original call that was posted to the CUNY DHI website and circulated through the Commons here: https://cunydhi.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2023/03/15/call-for-participation-dhi-lightning-talks-2023/.

We look forward to seeing you either tonight online or at future events.

We loved hearing about all of your projects, and we hope you will keep us updated at future GCDI events.

NYCDH Week 2017: GC Events + Workshops

On 27, Jan 2017 | In Uncategorized | By Mary Catherine Kinniburgh

The GC and NYCDH Week 2017

The Graduate Center is excited to host one of New York City’s largest digital humanities events of the year: the inimitable NYCDH Week! Hosted at institutions across New York City from February 6th to February 10th, NYCDH Week features workshops, events, and meet-up opportunities for people interested in digital work.

The GC is excited to host the week’s kick-off gathering on February 6th, which includes a day of project presentations, roundtables, and a keynote by our very own Dr. Stephen Brier, who is receiving the inaugural NYCDH Award for his contributions to the digital humanities community.

In addition, we’ll be hosting workshops at The Graduate Center all week, and have posted the events specifically at our institution below. We invite you to register in advance to ensure your spot, and to check out the full lineup (over 30!!!) of city-wide workshops at the NYCDH Week website.

NYCDH Week Workshops at the GC

“Machine Learning: A Primer”

February 8th, 10:00-12:00pm
Room C196.05
taught by Achim Koh

Description:

In recent years we have seen words related to recent developments in computer science and technology, like machine learning, artificial intelligence or neural networks, be used increasingly in diverse fields of research and of the society in general. This workshop will survey basic concepts of machine learning. No specific background is expected. The goal is to provide some vocabulary with which one can get a sense of what these computational methods are about. In addition, we will also survey existing machine learning-related resources that one can explore to learn further; the resources will address technical understanding as well as critical thinking about the many implications of the technology.

Register: http://dhweek.nycdh.org/event/machine-learning-a-primer/

“Physical Computing 101 with Arduino”

February 8th, 6:30-8:30pm
Room 9206
taught by Mary Catherine Kinniburgh

Description:

Join us for this absolutely no-experience necessary workshop to introduce you to the basics of using Arduino, an open-source hardware and software prototyping platform, so you can begin to consider and develop your own projects. In this course, we’ll use critical experimentation as a way to think about interactivity in our computational world.

Register: http://dhweek.nycdh.org/event/physical-computing-101-with-arduino/

“Introduction to Information Security”

February 9th, 6:30-8:30pm
Room C201
taught by Patrick Smyth

Description:

This workshop will cover issues of data security. What does it mean for data to be “secure”? What is data encryption? How might you begin to protect yourself from data surveillance, reconsider data storage, and think about personal privacy in an age of internet research? This workshop is designed for someone who has never really thought of data security as a humanities scholar but who might want to consider where to begin.

Register: http://dhweek.nycdh.org/event/introduction-to-information-security/

“Social Network Analysis for Humanities”

February 10th, 10:00-12:00pm
Room C196.05

Evaluating, Valuing, and Promoting Digital Scholarship

On 14, Apr 2015 | In Events of Interest, Uncategorized | By A.L. McMichael

The GC Digital Initiatives, CUNY DHI, and the GC Digital Fellows invite you to join us for a panel and discussion on Evaluating, Valuing, and Promoting Digital Scholarship.

It will be on April 21, 2015 at The Graduate Center in Room 9204 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Note: the event will be livestreamed.

Digital resources and methods are deeply embedded in academic research. However, processes for evaluation, peer review, and assessment projects that include digital scholarship have not kept pace with the technological and methodological changes that have altered research practices in many academic disciplines. Often, those not directly involved in digital projects are hesitant to use and assess them, especially if they are not familiar with the theoretical basis for a particular digital undertaking. In addition, digital work tends to be collaborative and interdisciplinary, offering new challenges for measuring the contributions of individuals. This panel is for both the enthusiastic and the skeptical, speaking both to those interested in creating and presenting digital work and those wishing to better understand and assess the digital scholarship of their colleagues.

Steven Jones, Professor of English and Co-Director, and Co-Director of the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities, Loyola University Chicago, “Welcome to the Interdiscipline”

Sonia K. González, MPH, DPH candidate in the CUNY School of Public Health, and Assistant Program Officer, Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate, “There’s an App for That, But Does It Work? Development of the Evaluation of a Sexual Health Mobile-Based App”

Elizabeth Macaulay-Lewis, Visiting Assistant Professor and Deputy Executive Officer, MA in Liberal Studies, The Graduate Center, CUNY, “Digital Digs: Training Archaeologists and Evaluating Digital Archaeology in the 21st Century”

Chris Allen Sula, Assistant Professor, Pratt Institute, School of Information & Library Science, “Methods, Disciplines, and Evaluating Scholarly Work in the Digital Humanities”

Amanda Visconti, PhD, University of Maryland, Literature and Digital Dissertation Fellow at Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), “Assessing Digital Humanities Dissertations: How to Plan, Track Progress, and Evaluate Work that Doesn’t Develop in Chapters”

A.L. McMichael, PhD candidate in Art History and GC Digital Fellow at The Graduate Center, CUNY, will be panel moderator. The panel will include brief talks by the digital scholars followed by discussion and audience questions.

This event will be Livestreamed! Click here for more information.

This event is co-sponsored by the the Futures Initiative, the New Media Lab, the ITP Certificate Program, and the Futures Initiative. It is free and open to the public. The Graduate Center is located at 365 Fifth Avenue, NYC.
