The NYU Abu Dhabi Winter Institute in Digital Humanities is an event founded in 2020 aimed at researchers and educators interested in the intersection of technology and the humanities. It has taken on different forms, including an in-person, multi-day institute taking place at the Saadiyat Island campus of New York University Abu Dhabi. The in-person event featured hands-on courses, lunchtime presentations, a keynote, a poster session, cultural and academic visits as well as networking opportunities. The Winter Institute has also hosted shorter, meetup-style virtual events.
Continuing the spirit of community-building and collaboration built during the inaugural NYU Abu Dhabi Winter Institute in Digital Humanities (WIDH) in January 2020, this year’s WIDH will be collocated with NYCDH Week as an entirely virtual event (February 8-12, 2021). The hashtag is #WIDH21
WIDH is offering ten, two-hour courses at WIDH 2021 on various topics in digital humanities. Information about each course can be found below.
