The Institute for the Digital Humanities at the University of Denver, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, offers select scholars the opportunity to explore the benefits of incorporating interactive media into their work. Institute fellows from across the humanities receive training and mentoring in the use of tools to digitize projects based on their own areas of interest. IDH workshops will instruct fellows in data analysis and presentation, social collaboration and authorship, and/or research production and dissemination.
Participants in the 18-month program are required to attend two on-campus events, one in June 2011 and one in September 2012. They are also required to participate in one video teleconference at the fellowship’s midpoint in December 2011.
The Institute is being run out of the university’s interdisciplinary Digital Media Studies program, renowned for innovative teaching, scholarship, and creative work in the digital humanities. 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 Digital Media Studies 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.
