    Learn about the theories, methods and practice of digital humanities (DH) in the Slavic and East European fields at the 2019 Slavic DH Summer Workshop, taking place at Princeton University (Princeton, NJ) on September 3-6, 2019.

    The thematic focus of the 2019 Workshop is “Digital Humanities and Visual Resources: The Material and Digital Lives of Eastern European and Russian Artifacts.”

    The four-day event will combine short instructional sessions, keynote lectures, works-in-progress presentations by participants, and free time for individual research with optional consultations with workshop instructors. The event will also include a day spent at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University, home of the renowned Russian & Soviet Nonconformist Art collection.

    The instructional sessions on DH tools and methods will be aimed at beginning, intermediate and more advanced audiences. Possible workshop topics (to be finalized with input from accepted participants) include: structured metadata design, linked open data, OmekaS, deep learning for automatic image recognition, and the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF).

    All scholars working the Slavic and East European fields – faculty, postdocs, librarians, archivists, technologists, graduate students and undergraduates – are eligible to apply.  No previous experience in digital humanities is necessary.

    A particular aim of the Slavic DH Summer Workshop is to foster international collaborations and strategic discussions about the infrastructures needed to promote Slavic and East European digital humanities scholarship in the global context.

    We hope to offer at least partial funding for accepted workshop participants, but funding is not guaranteed.
    Priority will be given to applications received by March 23, 2019. Funding will be allocated on a first come, first-served basis.

    Application should include:

    • Statement of interest (no more than 500 words) which should indicate how attending this workshop will benefit your scholarly or professional goals. Briefly describe your current DH project(s), if applicable.
    • CV
    • Preferred DH tools or methods for the instructional sessions
    • Funding request (please break down by cost of flight, ground transportation, lodging, food). Please indicate alternative or supplemental funding sources available.
