What is the DH Clinic?

Describes DH Clinic co-teaching opportunity for Claremont Collegesfaculty

NOTE: These courses will go through the same approval process as any other course at your campus. Please talk with your department chair and dean about your proposed course redesign or new course plan, as well as how it fits into your current and future teaching responsibilities. As specified above, DH clinics may run through Claremont McKenna College as DGHM 150 or through your home campus and department.

Sample Catalog Description: This is a project-based course that focuses on the applied integration of humanistic inquiry, data science, computer science, and project management to build out and present a scholarly digital humanities (DH) project. Students work in teams of 4-6, alongside the instructors, to design and create a project based on the professors’ source material and research. This course also offers opportunities to present both the process and product, as well as the potential to publish this work in DH and disciplinary journals.

Frequency: 1-2 clinics will be offered each semester of the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years. Apply now and specify which semester works for you.

Eligibility: Faculty from any discipline with a humanities or social science research project will be considered for this opportunity.

Hiring Student Assistants

Digital Humanities at The Claremont Colleges (DH@CC) faculty course development grant winners who have been awarded student assistants will receive as much help in searching for their student assistants as the DH@CC staff can provide. In most cases, however, grant winners are largely responsible for finding their student assistants. Once grant winners find the appropriate student assistant, they should be sent to the DH@CC Project Manager for hiring instructions. Below you will find suggestions and resources for finding student assistants.
