Understanding Digital Culture: Humanist Lenses for Internet Research, an

held June 1-5, 2020 at the University of Central Florida, seeks

Understanding Digital Culture aims to increase the number of humanities
scholars using digital tools for data collection and analysis in internet
research. Drawing on the expertise of an interdisciplinary community of
humanities scholars spanning digital humanities, information studies,
American studies, fan studies, cultural studies, media studies, and games
studies, Understanding Digital Culture will enable sharing ideas and
methods for using digital technologies to advance humanities research and
teaching. Specifically, we will provide resources, training, and a
community of collaborators to engage both computational network and data
analysis tools and the ethics and best practices of using the web as a site
of research.

No previous experience in digital humanities is required to apply, and the
workshop sessions are structured to assume no prior knowledge of either the
technology or theory in order to allow for the broadest range of
participation. Graduate students and early career scholars are especially
encouraged to apply, as are faculty and staff at institutions such as
HBCUs,Tribal Colleges, and community colleges.

All who are selected to participate will receive a stipend of $1,250 to
support their attendance at the Institute. 25 places are available.
