Texas A&M University seeks to hire a dynamic researcher with an established record in digital humanities research and/or humanities, artistic, or information visualization to participate in establishing an interdisciplinary Institute for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC).
IDHMC Faculty Fellow and Professor of Communication, Dr. Heidi Campbell, has made the TAMU news! Click on the links below to read more about her project on the TAMU College of Liberal Arts website and The Battalion, the TAMU student newspaper.
The IDHMC invites you to an event sponsored by the Network for New Media, Religion and Digital Culture Studies, the Religious Studies program, and our offices on October 18, 2013.
Date: October 18, 2013
Time: 1:00 - 3:30 pm
Location: Bolton 111D
Speaker: Dr. Gregory Grieve, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro
Now that we are settled in to our new building, it's time to celebrate, and we can think of no better way to do that than to enjoy a talk by Dr. Lisa Spiro, a longtime supporter of IDHMC whose scholarship and activism in the field of DH continues to be an inspiration to us (and many others). Lisa will be presenting a talk, "Why Digital Humanities?" at 3:00 in LAAH 453.
Today we said goodbye to Jacob Heil, IDHMC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, who is leaving to begin his new position as Mellon Digital Scholar at the Five Colleges of Ohio Consortium. We will miss you, Jake, and we wish you the best in your new job!
The IDHMC is pleased to communicate two excellent pieces of job placement news from this Summer 2013.
IDHMC Lead Programmer Matt Christy has been working with Gamera over the past few weeks, as we've chosen three open-source OCR engines to test our theory for improving the OCR of early modern texts. We hope you'll visit the post for a look at the lessons we've learned and the progress we've made.
Especially illuminating is Matt's description of Gamera, the software's OCR toolkit, and the collaborative effort it has taken for eMOP to come to certain conclusions about the effectiveness of the software for large data sets.
[This position has been filled.]
Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Digital Humanities at Texas A&M
The Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture, in partnership with the College of Liberal Arts at Texas A&M University, announces a postdoctoral research fellowship for the academic year 2013-2014 in the area of digital humanities. This position is in association with the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC) and 18thConnect.
IDHMC Lead Programmer and self-dubbed "code monkey," Matt Christy, has posted a series of short reflections about eMOP's Tesseract experimentations. We hope you'll visit the page to get a look at the lessons we've learned, the goals we're trying to achieve, and the tips and tricks we have to offer the OCR community.
The Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC) and Advanced Research Consortium (ARC) at Texas A&M University are very excited to announce the launch of the Medieval Electronic Scholarly Alliance (MESA).
