I am excited to share that The Early Modern Digital Itineraries (EmDigIt) Project: Workshops for Data-Driven Approaches to Premodern Travel has received the support of an NEH Digital Humanities Advancement grant. The EmDigIt Project advances new collaborative and data-driven approaches to premodern travel. We will be hosting three (3) virtual workshops on Zoom over the course of spring 2024 as well as an in-person conference in the Washington D.C. area.
We seek interested participants at work on premodern travel studies and with an interest in data-driven approaches. Researchers of any institutional affiliation or career stage (including current PhD students) are encouraged to apply. Prior digital humanities experience or involvement with spatial historical projects is a plus, but not required. Participants will receive a stipend towards lodging and travel for the August 2024 in-person one-day conference hosted at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

The call for application is now open and available until October 1, 2023. If I might ask a favor, I would be much obliged if you could help me to distribute this e-mail and/or the attached flyers widely.
