Call for Applications – Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative, University of Toronto (deadline: Feb 19)

The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI), in concert with the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies Provost Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, is pleased to invite applications for a two year, fixed term postdoctoral fellowship beginning no later than December 31, 2021. The successful applicant will be supervised by CDHI Director Elspeth Brown. Applicants should propose research related to digital humanities from a critical, intersectional perspective. 

 

The CDHI is a tri-campus research initiative that bridges the humanities’ emphasis on power and culture with the tools and analysis of digital technology to forge a new, generative paradigm of digital humanities scholarship. Critical Digital Humanities is an emerging, intersectional field that emphasizes questions of power, social justice, and critical theory in making and analyzing digital technologies. This is a version of digital humanities that understands our current historic shift in digital technology as an opportunity for social and political transformation. Critical Digital Humanities foregrounds creative praxis, co-creation, public engagement, and community-based research.  

 

Purpose 

The University of Toronto Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides funding to Graduate Faculties to increase opportunities for hiring postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups, specifically Indigenous and Black researchers. These fellowships will enable postdoctoral researchers to grow their scholarly profiles, undertake academic work at the University of Toronto, and strengthen the research environment at the University with diverse perspectives.

Farewell to Lawrence Evalyn!

Please join us in wishing our wonderful DHN Program Assistant, Lawrence Evalyn, a fond farewell! At the end of last semester, Lawrence completed his contract with the DHN. He now works to finalize his dissertation, “Print Politics in the Digital Archive, 1789-1799.” During his time with us, Lawrence proved to be an invaluable member of the team. He poured his heart into the ISI proposal, working countless hours on the formatting, appendices, and graphics, as well as supported the monthly Lightning Lunches by making event posters and monitoring Zoom attendance and chat. Lawrence also supervised our undergraduate communications assistant, Andy Huynh, coordinated DHN tasks in Asana, and took exceptional meeting minutes. Lawrence’s enthusiasm and diligence will be missed, but he hasn’t gone too far! In fact, he will be speaking next week at the Digital Literary Archives Lightning Lunch. We congratulate him on entering his final months of his PhD candidacy and wish him the very best!

Announcing the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative!

We are pleased to announce that the Digital Humanities Network (DHN)’s proposal to launch a three year Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) has been funded! With nearly 3M of funding from the Institutional Strategic Initiatives and divisional contributions at the University of Toronto, the CDHI will bridge the humanities’ emphasis on power and culture with the tools and analysis of digital technology to forge a new, generative paradigm of critical humanities scholarship. With an emphasis on anti-racist, feminist, queer, and decolonial scholarship and research, the CDHI will gather together researchers, students, and collaborators from both the humanities and the data sciences to tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our time. The CDHI will position the University of Toronto as a global leader in bringing questions of power and inequality to digital humanities research, while continuing to support digital humanities work more broadly at the UofT.

The CDHI will provide support for critical digital humanities in multiple ways across the tricampus. Key objectives include building the research network through staffing in the form of a managing director, development officer, a knowledge mobilization officer, and two digital humanities developers; building a strong interdisciplinary research community through annual lightning lunch and speaker series; supporting new research through an emerging projects incubator, consultations, and training bursaries; mobilizing knowledge through public engagement and conferences; establishing a postdoctoral fellowship program; offering a suite of 96 undergraduate and graduate student critical DH fellowships; and creating a robust sustainability plan that will secure funding for digital humanities at UofT long-term.

The proposal emerged over a 15-month planning process in 2019-2020, which included two plenary strategic planning sessions and over 55 individual meetings with faculty researchers, Chairs, Deans, and VP Research across the tri-campus. The proposal is supported through divisional contributions from four divisions at the UofT: UTM, UTSC, the Faculty of Information, and the Faculty of Arts and Science. Over 100 faculty members and librarians have contributed to our planning process. A 10-person faculty working group spent the summer workshopping a draft proposal, enabling us to further clarify our vision and goals.

The CDHI proposal is the first humanities application to be funded by the ISI, as well as the first to feature a project lead from Mississauga (Dr. Elspeth Brown, Historical Studies). In the coming months, the DHN looks forward to enacting the infrastructure of this new initiative. If you would like to review a copy of the proposal in its final form, please contact the DHN admin at dhn.admin@utoronto.ca. 

February 23 Lightning Lunch – Network Analysis

Speaker Biographies:

Carl Knappett specializes in the Aegean Bronze Age, and Minoan Crete in particular. His main focus currently is the east Cretan site of Palaikastro, where he directs a new excavation project. Professor Knappett continues his research on pottery from a number of other Aegean sites, such as Knossos, Malia, Myrtos Pyrgos, Akrotiri, and Miletus. This multi-sited approach has led him into various kinds of network analysis for investigating regional interactions. 

Irad Malkin recently published a book (soon in paperback) applying Network Theory to the question of how did Greek civilization emerge during the Archaic period when Greeks were actually distancing themselves from each other. How did civilizational convergence accompany settlement divergence? This follows his interest in religion and colonization, the use of myth as mediator between political communities and lands, ethnicity and collective identity, and Mediterranean history and historiography. In 1986 he co-founded and still serves as co-editor of the Mediterranean Historical Review.

John S. Kloppenborg is a specialist in Christian origins and second Temple Judaism, in particular the Jesus tradition (the canonical and non canonical gospels), and the social world of the early Jesus movement in Jewish Palestine and in the cities of the eastern Empire. He has written extensively on the Synoptic Sayings Gospel (Q) and the Synoptic Problem, and is currently writing on the parables of Jesus, the letter of James, and cultic, professional, and ethnic associations in the Graeco-Roman world. He is one of the general editors of the International Q Project and holds a five year SSHRC Insight Grant on Associative Practices in the Graeco-Roman World.
