The application window is currently closed. Stay tuned for future opportunities to join a Faculty Learning Community in Digital Humanities.

This past spring, the Digital Innovation Lab and the Center for Faculty Excellence launched a Faculty Learning Community in Digital Humanities (DH FLC). We are now accepting applications from UNC-CH faculty members interested in joining the group beginning in Fall 2014. Current members of the DH FLC do not need to reapply.

The group will meet on the first and third Fridays of each month throughout the fall semester from 9am-11am:

  • September 5, 2014
  • September 19, 2014
  • October 3, 2014
  • October 24, 2014 (rescheduled from October 17, which is Fall Break)
  • November 7, 2014
  • November 21, 2014
  • December 5, 2014
  • December 19, 2014

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 the year, 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 is meant to be an interdisciplinary and diverse group. Faculty with little/no technical knowledge are encouraged to apply, as are 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. UNC-CH 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, August 25, 2014 by 5pm. Questions should be directed to Stephanie Barnwell or Molly Sutphen.
