Dear CDH Friends:

As the weather gets warmer, we invite you to join us for a busy week of virtual events at the Center for Digital Humanities. On Tuesday, we are hosting an important conversation on Academic Research Beyond the Tenure Track featuring two of our colleagues, Rebecca Munson and Grant Wythoff.

On Wednesday, we'll kick off a three-day event, Crowdsourcing and the Humanities: Roundtable Discussions Celebrating the Scribes of the Cairo Geniza. The Scribes of the Cairo Geniza is a multilingual crowdsourcing project launched in 2017 to classify and transcribe manuscript fragments from a medieval Egyptian synagogue.

All times are Eastern unless otherwise noted.
April 13, 12:00–1:20 pm: "Academic Research Off the Tenure Track," Part II of our How We Work series, will feature the CDH's own Rebecca Munson and Grant Wythoff. Discussion will center on how Rebecca and Grant transitioned from humanities graduate students to CDH staff members and on what it means to teach, publish, and produce academic events in a nontraditional and collaborative environment like the CDH. Graduate students and postdocs from all departments are welcome. Sign up.

The How We Work series is presented in collaboration with GradFUTURES.
April 14–16, 10:00–1:30 pm: "Crowdsourcing and the Humanities," part of our Collections as Data series in partnership with Princeton University Library, will build on the work of Scribes of the Cairo Geniza—a project led by the University of Pennsylvania Libraries and the Zooniverse—to explore methods for project development and management, data curation and use, and crowdsourcing. Panelists include historians, developers, librarians, philologists, curators, DH practitioners, Geniza specialists, and community members around the world. See the full schedule and sign up.

"Crowdsourcing and the Humanities" is presented in collaboration with the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, the Princeton Geniza Lab, and the Zooniverse.
