Announcement: 2012 NEH Digital Humanities Project Directors Meeting

2012 NEH Digital Humanities Project Directors Meeting – Open to Public | National Endowment for the Humanities

Come learn about using facial recognition software to unlock art historical mysteries, developing tools for building maps on the fly, employing gaming technology to help enrich archival collections, or discovering early writings of Abraham Lincoln with authorship attribution algorithms … all in just three minutes.

From 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on September 20th during 2012 NEH Office of Digital Humanities Project Directors at the National Endowment for the Humanities, the recent ODH grantees will give the public a sneak preview of 34 ground-breaking projects that apply cutting-edge technology to high quality research in the humanities. Project directors from the Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, the Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants, and the new Digital Humanities Implementation Grants will be discussing their work.

The grant recipients from around the country will assemble at NEH headquarters in Washington D.C. in room M-09 to present their projects in “lightning-round” format. Project directors will have just minutes and three PowerPoint slides to introduce and explain their projects to the public. Be sure to take a look at the schedule of lightning round presentations.

In between morning and afternoon lightning-round project presentations, a roundtable of librarians, researchers, and funding agencies representatives will discuss the new report from the Council on Library and Information Resources, One Culture, Computationally Intensive Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
