In January 2023, the Center for Digital Humanities brought together scholars from across Princeton University for the inaugural Humanities + Data Science Institute.

The five-day Institute, supported by a Magic Grant from the Humanities Council, gave humanities researchers and practitioners the opportunity “to learn about emerging methods in data science in a structured way,” said CDH Digital Humanities Strategist Grant Wythoff, in a story on the CDH website.

Wythoff orchestrated the series, with crucial planning and instructional input from Sierra Eckert, CDH postdoctoral research associate and Perkins Fellow in the Humanities Council, and CDH Research Software Engineer Ryan Heuser.

During the Institute, the sixteen participants—affiliated with 13 campus units—discussed pre-assigned readings, engaged in hands-on workshops, and received consultations on their individual research projects.
