The ongoing sustainability of digital humanities projects is of critical concern to archivists, librarians, and digital humanities practitioners alike. UT Libraries is pleased to host an NEH ODH Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities designed to help such professionals create sustainability plans and address preservation concerns at any point in the life of a digital humanities project.

The workshop will be based on the Socio-Technical Sustainability Roadmap (STSR), a sustainability-focused project housed in the Visual Media Workshop at the University of Pittsburgh. The STSR is a structured group exercise that guides participants through the practice of creating effective sustainability plans. It is based on research findings that demonstrate that the needs of a project’s social infrastructure must be addressed alongside the needs of its technological infrastructure in order to successfully sustain digital work over time.

The Sustaining DH Workshop is designed to accommodate approximately 25 people, most working in teams of two or three. To apply, please fill out this brief application form: 

Space is limited.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the LLILAS Benson Digital Scholarship Office and the Humanities Institute.
