News: NEH ODH Update: Apply Now to Attend a Digital Humanities Institute

News from the NEH ODH Update:

Greetings digital humanities friends!

Each year, we fund a series of exciting digital humanities institutes. These are a wonderful opportunity to learn about how to incorporate digital methods into your teaching and research. Past attendees always tell us that these institutes were an incredible experience – truly, we receive comments back like “career-changing” and “best academic experience of my life.”

In most cases, you will apply to attend an institute and it will include reimbursement for travel and lodging. Most are open to faculty, grad students, #altac folks, etc. So please apply – but do so soon! Most of these institutes meet in the summer of 2012 and applications are due soon (check each institute website for specific deadlines).
