The Digital Innovation Lab and the Center for Faculty Excellence are proud to announce a new opportunity for UNC faculty: The Faculty Learning Community in Digital Humanities (DH FLC).

The DH FLC is intended for faculty who are interested in incorporating digital technologies and approaches into their humanities teaching and research. Over the course of about 12 months, the DH FLC will learn together and from one another about digital humanities approaches and methodologies, study exemplar projects, and be exposed to a range of open-source tools for creating digital humanities projects. Participants will apply what they learn toward developing a digital humanities project to be used for hands-on, undergraduate learning.

The DH FLC will be comprised of an interdisciplinary and diverse group of participants representing a broad range and extent of DH knowledge and experience. Faculty with little/no technical knowledge are equally encouraged to apply as those with DH experience. There are no technical or experiential prerequisites for joining the DH FLC beyond an interest and curiosity in DH teaching and research. Faculty at all ranks (tenure, tenure-track, fixed-term, adjunct, research or clinical rank, lecturers, or instructors) are invited to apply.

The DH FLC is part of the Curricular Innovation and Professional Development program of the Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI), an effort supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop a sustainable and scalable model of digital humanities at UNC.

Learn more about the DH FLC and how to apply. Applications are due Monday, January 6, 2014. Questions should be directed to DIL Manager Pam Lach.
