We are pleased to announce the recipients of the fourth annual NYCDH Graduate Student Project Award for 2017.
The awardees are:
Jonathan Reeve (Columbia University). First prize ($1000) for the project “Corpus DB: A Textual Corpus Database for the Digital Humanities”
Aaron Hershkowitz & Rick Hale (Rutgers University). Runner Up ($500) for the project “RTI & Photogrammetry for Badian Collection”
Roxanne Smith (Columbia University). Runner Up ($500) for the project “Documenting the Art Collections of San Francisco’s 19th Century Tycoons: A Digital Map and Archive”
Juan Carlos Sánchez Herrera (New York University). Honorable Mention for the project “Food Pairings Over Time: Colombia 1977-2017”
The submissions we received were of a very high quality, and showed us that digital humanities work among graduate students in New York City is robust and full of promise. Although we could only give out three cash prizes and one honorable mention, NYCDH is dedicated to supporting the DH work of NYC graduate students by offering DH programming, training opportunities, collaborations, and guidance throughout the year.
About the NYCDH Graduate Student Project Award:
Awarded annually, the award committee solicits proposals over the summer. The proposals are judged by a group selected from the NYCDH Steering Committee, and the winners are chosen based on their intellectual contribution, innovative use of technology, and the clarity of their work plan.
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.
