We are pleased to announce the recipients of the fifth annual NYCDH Graduate Student Project Award for 2018.
The awardees are:
Eamonn Bell (Columbia). First prize ($1000) for the project, “A New Ground-Truth Data Set for Automatic Annotation Extraction from Musical Scores”
Lucia Motolinia Carballo (NYU). Runner Up ($500) for the project, “Electoral Accountability and Local Public Goods: Evidence from a Natural Experiment in Mexico”

Chris McGuinness (CUNY Graduate Center). Honorable Mention for the project, “Performing Musical Transcription: Participatory Pedagogy through Digital Audio Workstations”
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 two honorable mentions, 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 in the spring. 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.
