February 6, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST| Free
Do you work at a predominantly technical university? Are you Interested in developing curricula and degree programs in Digital Humanities? This workshop will introduce work being done to develop Digital Humanities at ITMO University in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), which recently established an International DH Lab co-directed by workshop instructors Antonina Puchkovskaya and Kimon Keramidas. During the workshop, we will share the challenges of developing DH curriculum and programming at a predominantly technical university, address the different administrative and pedagogical perspectives at tech institutions, discuss how getting buy-in from constituencies can pose particular challenges. We will also discuss how collaborative work started during NYCDH Week 2018 led to the establishment of the center and the development of a MA in Digital Humanities that will be launching in the fall of 2019. The workshop will also cover using the cultural heritage sector to find projects and an open conversation with people already working or just starting to develop DH in environments such as this.
