Call for Applications: Born-Digital Publishing, Brown University

March 15, 2022


The application is open to scholars of all ranks, including university faculty and adjuncts, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars. Applicants must have a PhD.


Brown University's Digital Publications Initiative invites applications for participation in an NEH Institute on Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, Born-Digital Scholarly Publishing: Resources and Roadmaps. The three-week hybrid Institute will take place virtually July 11-24 and in-person at Brown University July 25-29, 2022. Participant travel, lodging, and per diem expenses will be covered for the in-person component. 

Born-Digital Scholarly Publishing: Resources and Roadmaps supports scholars who wish to pursue interpretive projects that require digital expression and are intended for publication by a scholarly press, but who lack resources and capacity at their home institutions. Projects must be conceived of as born-digital, or digital-first. The Institute does not support digitization projects or the development of supplemental websites for print books, but rather publication projects anchored by an original, longform narrative. The Institute will train scholars in best practices unique to the development of digital scholarly publications.
