What is the GC Digital Research Institute?

Traditionally, the GC Digital Research Institute (GC DRI) takes place over a 4-day, in-person, intensive institute in mid-January. This year, however, the DRI will take the form of a Workshop Series, which will occur remotely over consecutive weekends between January 29 and February 27, 2021.

It is an online training course for learning core digital research skills while connecting with peers in an interdisciplinary environment.

The GC DRI Workshop Series combines training in areas such as R, Python, command line, and data ethics, among others, with specialized short workshops and professional development sessions.

Participants will share their academic goals, collaborate as they learn, and explore a variety of digital methods to employ in their research.

GC DRI Workshop Series is free and open to all members of the Graduate Center community.

GC DRI began in 2016 as part of the CUNY Strategic Investment Initiative and developed in partnership with Software Carpentry, the New York Public Library, Mozilla Science Lab, Humanities Intensive Learning and Teaching, and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute.

Supported by The Provost’s Office,
the Digital Research Institute is a GC Digital Initiative.
