Digital Humanities Data Curation Institute Now Accepting Applications

Hey everybody:

The Digital Humanities Data Curation Institute — a joint effort by University of Maryland’s MITH, the Women’s’ Writers Project, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Library and Information Science — is now accepting applications for a three-day workshop (one of three) to be held in College Park, MD in October. According to the Institute website, the workshop “will provide a strong introductory grounding in data curation concepts and practices, focusing on the special issues and challenges of data curation in the digital humanities.”

At the workshop, attendees will learn how to:

  • Model humanities data for sustainable computational research
  • Identify, assess, and mitigate risks to their data
  • Evaluate tools and systems for working with data from a curatorial perspective
  • Plan and implement data management during all phases of a project’s lifecycle
  • Leverage data curation skills to improve scholarly publications, grant applications, and promotion dossiers
  • Understand and stay current with the landscape of data curation research
