Graduate Student Caucus: Call for Applicants

The University of Chicago will be hosting a major conference on the digital humanities on May 22-23, 2015. The purpose of the conference is to bring together leading scholars in computational literary and cultural studies for two days of discussion and work sharing. This group of scholars is joined by a common interest in bringing new methods in computer science and data analysis to bear on the study of literature and history. Participants include: Franco Moretti, Ted Underwood, Meredith Martin, Andrew Piper, Natalie Houston, Matthew Wilkens, Matthew Jockers, Marissa Gemma, Ryan Cordell, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, David Smith, Tanya Clement, Mark Algee-Hewitt, and Ryan Heuser.


As part of this conference, we will have a graduate student caucus composed of advanced PhD students from both the University of Chicago and other institutions. The task of this caucus will be to engage with each day’s discussion and provide a report or series of comments at the conference’s conclusion. We have received funding to invite 4 outside graduate students to join the caucus. Up to $1000 of funding is budgeted for each student.


Interested students should submit a 1-page application by February 15th, 2015. You can find the application form at the link below. Results will be announced by March 1st. Proposals should briefly describe the applicant’s interest in the digital humanities and any previous work in this area. Expertise in computation and experience with DH projects is welcome but not required.
