As a scholarly organization that has served as a peer-reviewing body for digital work in the long nineteenth-century since 2005, NINES is invested in highlighting and shaping the systems by which scholars are given credit for their work online. Thanks to funding from the NEH, Director Andrew Stauffer along with Laura Mandell (Director of NINES’s sister site, 18thConnect and newly appointed Director of the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media and Culture at Texas A&M) and Susan Schreibman (Long Room Hub Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities at Trinity College, Dublin) invite scholars and administrators to contribute to the conversation at two consecutive summer institutes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The second and final round of the NINES / NEH Summer Institutes gathered chairs of literature departments from a range of colleges and universities to address issues specifically at the level of departmental leadership. Building upon documents produced last year, our goal was to produce collaborative working papers that could help guide the activities of literature departments as scholarship moves into digital forms.
