The Institute

About the Digital Humanities Collaborative Institute:

The Digital Humanities Collaborative Institute (DHCI) is a 1-3 day Institute that occurs several times each year in North Carolina with the goal of promoting digital humanities projects across North Carolina in an equitable fashion. Any institution in North Carolina can host the event.

The Institute is flexible depending on the host, but often features digital humanities workshops to learn skills and/or tools, unconference sessions (small group discussions, lightning talks, open mic for news/jobs/project plugs), and opportunities for attendees to share their work with the network. Similarly, the theme is chosen by the institute planning committee, but could focus on scholarship, pedagogy, collections, public projects, social justice, or a combination of all of these. The goal is to meet in person to promote digital humanities projects across North Carolina in an equitable fashion.
