Folger Shakespeare Library Summer Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities: "Early Modern Digital Agendas"

A three-week institute, hosted by the Folger Shakespeare Library, for twenty scholars of early modern English studies to gain both applied and theoretical familiarity with digital research resources and methods.

Early Modern Digital Agendas is an expansively defined training institute. Its exercises will instill a working knowledge of the methods and models that are currently broadening the interpretive horizons of early modern scholars. It will create a forum in which participants can historicize, theorize, and evaluate digital tools and approaches, with discussion growing out of, and feeding back into, their own projects. Each week builds on the previous one. During the first, participants will work with online catalogues and textual archives. In the second, they will investigate additions to the textual corpus through digital and interoperable editions. During the third, participants will explore corpus linguistics, the latest methods for visualizing that work, and the implications these advancements have for research in the humanities. With these tools, participants will create a digital footprint to disseminate their period-specific discoveries of the best DH approaches and sources.
