Participants will develop core computational research skills through hands-on workshops, explore interdisciplinary digital humanities research and teaching with leading DH scholars, and begin developing versions of the DHRI for their own communities. Over the following academic year, each participant will have access to an online network of peers, as well as 20 hours of consultation from our experienced staff while they lead their own DHRI. Participants will return to New York in June 2019 to report on their experiences and contribute to a guide to leading DHRIs in a variety of institutional contexts.

Abstract: This session features eight (8) of the sixteen (16) humanities scholars who participated in the June 2018 Digital Humanities Research Institute (DHRI) at the CUNY Graduate Center and who now form a national network of distributed DH institute leaders. Additionally, GC Digital Fellows Patrick Smyth, Jojo Karlin, Olivia Ildefonso, and Javier Otero Peña and Digital Scholarship Librarian Stephen Zweibel will demonstrate the open access DHRI curriculum and explain how you can use it to jump start your own local institute. After a brief welcome by Project Director Lisa Rhody and Institutes Coordinator Kalle Westerling, the session will break into 9 simultaneous "lightning" presentations followed by questions at stations around Salons 2 & 3. Presentations will be repeated 5 times, allowing conference attendees to circulate among multiple stations. Around the room, there will also be stations with headphones to view the interviews with DHRI community leads (also found below) who were unable to attend the ACH conference. GC-based DHRI faculty and fellows will be on hand to answer questions. The session will conclude with a large-group question and answer period.
