Brown University Library has announced a call for participants for an NEH-funded Institute, Born-Digital Scholarly Publishing: Resources and Roadmaps, hosted by the Library’s Digital Publications Initiative.
Born-Digital Scholarly Publishing: Resources and Roadmaps supports scholars who wish to pursue interpretive projects that require digital expression and are intended for publication by a scholarly press, but who lack resources and capacity at their home institutions. Projects must be conceived of as born-digital, or digital-first.
By demystifying and streamlining the digital publication process,
and by making the full curriculum openly accessible,
this first-of-its-kind national training program will expand
the voices, perspectives, and visions represented
in the practice and production of digital humanities scholarship.
The Institute will equip humanities scholars from all career levels and across disciplines with in-depth knowledge of the digital publishing process, familiarity with open source tools and platforms, advanced project management skills, concrete and individualized plans for project advancement, and top-level publishing industry contacts.
The three-week hybrid Institute will take place virtually July 11–22, 2022 and in person July 25–29, 2022 on the campus of Brown University. Participant travel, lodging, and per diem expenses will be covered by the Institute for the in-person component.
Applications are due March 15, 2022.
