About Slavic DH

Digital Humanities in the Slavic Field was formed to support the teaching, scholarship, curation, and preservation of digitally-rendered work in Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies. We also aim to connect humanists with colleagues in other disciplines who have a longer history with these methodologies and approaches.

We to contribute in the following major areas:

  • enabling collaboration between students, scholars, librarians, archivists, and IT specialists in order to carry out DH projects (building bridges between institutions where necessary);
  • collecting and curating DH projects produced by Slavists to improve access and outreach for existing projects, and to identify common methodologies and areas of interest for future projects;
  • mentoring and advising students/junior colleagues in Slavic Studies who have an interest in DH practices, sharing resources for teaching and professionalization, and promoting student collaboration in ongoing DH projects;
  • raising the visibility of DH in Slavic Studies to encourage awareness and acceptance of these practices in our field, particularly among senior scholars and administrators responsible for mentoring students and junior faculty, as well for hiring, promotion and tenure;
  • connecting DH scholars in North American Slavic Studies with relevant colleagues and projects around the world, especially with those engaged in similar DH practices in Eastern Europe and Eurasia;
  • providing support for colleagues in Slavic Studies at institutions without strong resources in DH, and sharing new information, tools, and DH methodologies, whenever possible in an open-source and/or open-access environment;
  • representing Slavic Studies in the larger field of Digital Humanities, raising awareness and visibility among non-Slavists about DH projects and resources in our field.
