The 2021 Binghamton Digital Humanities Research Institute (DHRI) is a 5-day intensive workshop for Binghamton University faculty and graduate students who are interested in the digital humanities. The institute includes seminar-type sessions oriented around critical discussion and hands-on workshops that will introduce the foundational skills and tools that are central to digital humanities practices. Sessions will treat topics such as the command line, data visualization, text analysis, Python, ArcGIS, and digital scholarship. The sessions will be animated by discussions about data ethics, open access, algorithmic bias, and the value of collaboration. The goal is to foster a dynamic, robust and generative community of digital humanities researchers and teachers at Binghamton University.

The Binghamton DHRI is hosted by the University Libraries and co-sponsored by the Center for Learning and Teaching and Harpur College of Arts and Sciences. It is co-organized by Amy Gay (Digital Scholarship Librarian) and Nancy Um (Professor of Art History and Associate Dean of Harpur College) and was developed based on a ten-day residential workshop held in 2018, hosted by GC Digital Initiatives at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The first Binghamton DHRI was held in Summer 2019.
