We are happy to announce the recipients of our first NYC-DH Graduate Student Digital Project Awards for 2014. The awardees are:
|Gaudet-Connor (former NYU; LIU)||First prize|
|Ollett, Andrew (Columbia)||Runner up|
|Joyce, Jennifer Brooke (NYU)||Runner up|
|Payne, Steven (Fordham)||Honorable mention|
The submissions we received were of a very high quality, and showed us that digital humanities work among our graduate students in New York City is robust and full of promise. We received 4 submissions from NYU, 3 from Columbia, 2 from the Graduate Center, CUNY, 1 from the New School and 1 from Fordham University. Although we could only give out three cash prizes and one honorable mention, NYCDH is dedicated to looking for supporting the DH work of our graduate students by offering DH programming, them continue their work in the form of training opportunities, collaborations, and guidance throughout the year.
About the NYCDH Student Digital Award: During its 2014 inaugural year, the NYCDH Student Digital Award solicited proposals in August, 2014, which were then judged by a board selected from the NYCDH steering committee. The winners were chosen based on their intellectual contribution, innovative use of technology, and the clarity of their work plan.
About NYCDH: The New York City Digital Humanities group brings together New York City scholars and members of the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, museums) community to talk about, experiment with, collaborate on, teach and learn about, and just generally commune around the digital humanities.
