The Folger Shakespeare library (Washington, DC) seeks 15 advanced scholars with their own data to attend "Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics", a second three-week NEH institute to be hosted by the Folger Institute from 15 June through 1 July 2015 *. * Participants will reflect on the ways DH expands the universe of possible questions that literary scholars can ask while new technologies produce exponentially larger bodies of evidence faster than ever before. Among the questions visiting faculty will pose and consider with the participants: What is "data"? What transformations lie behind statistical analysis? How is corpus-wide variation being treated? What are the principles of visualization? The aim is to enable participants not just to perform analysis, or curate data, but to understand the processes they engage in—where they enable, how they restrict, and how they might be improved. It remains the Folger's goal to ensure that DH practitioners question not only what is possible with digital tools, but why one would put them to certain uses, and at what costs.

Please see the full curriculum at http://folgerpedia.folger.edu/EMDA2015_Curriculum and for full details and application material, please see http://folgerpedia.folger.edu/EMDA2015

The deadline for applications is 2 March 2015.
