Digital Scholarship Incubator

Call for Applications

In the fall of 2017, the Boston College Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Group will host a Digital Scholarship Incubator, a seven-week series that aims to introduce major tools, methodologies, and questions in digital scholarship, while also empowering participants to develop a digital scholarship or pedagogy project. We’ll focus on participants’ needs and desired areas of growth in digital scholarship.

  • What is an incubator? An opportunity to develop a digital research or pedagogy project within a cohort of digital scholarship practitioners. Each week we will focus on a different topic. The curriculum includes sessions on text analysis, digital archives and critical editions, data cleanup, and pattern finding.
    • You’ll refine project ideas through planning & peer review.
    • You’ll provide the idea(s), and we’ll provide resources to help develop your idea in a safe space.
  • What’s the time frame? We’ll begin meeting the week of August 28 and wrap up in October.
  • What are the expectations for participants? We ask that participants commit to weekly two-hour meetings for seven weeks, plus some additional work outside of the meeting sessions.

Applications are now closed.
