Join us in 2022!

California Digital Humanities Research Institute (CaliDHRI) is a free, annual digital ethnic studies institute inspired by CUNY DHRI and hosted by UC Irvine Libraries and UCLA Libraries. The inaugural CaliDHRI will center Black digital humanities thematically, and rotate annually through Latinx, Asian American, and Indigenous Studies topics while focusing on California-centric research questions and datasets. CaliDHRI 2022 (April 27-29th) will be virtual.

We are sponsored by UC Irvine Libraries, UCLA Libraries, UCLA Digital Humanities Program, UCLA Center for the Study of Women (CSW), UCLA Office of Advanced Research Computing, USC Mellon Humanities and the Digital World Program, and CUNY Digital Humanities Research Institute.

Program Description

Our 2022 theme, “The Black Press”, will be explored by three keynote speakers (who will highlight their own Black digital humanities research and projects) as well as individuals or small teams of participants who have applied to the Institute with a research question, collection, or project in mind. We invite participants of all skill levels and from any discipline who are interested in helping to build a Black digital humanities community with a California focus. All keynotes are open to the public. Participation in the CaliDHRI institute is by application only.
