Congratulations to New Media Lab Digital Humanities Awardees

January 24, 2022

Congratulations to New Media Lab students Nicole Cote and Julia Fuller, recipients of the 2021 NYC Digital Humanities Graduate Student Digital Project Award. Three awards were given to graduate students attending any institution in New York City and the metropolitan area. The New Media Lab is proud to have supported two of this year’s recipients.

Nicole Cote, PhD student in English, received first place for her project, VisDepot: An Introductory Resource for Data Visualization. VisDepot is an open educational resource for those who want to learn data visualization. It will provide an introductory, curated, and vetted repository of tools, concepts, and tutorials for visualization.

Julia Fuller, PhD candidate in English, received third place for her project, Visual Vixens. The project is a component of her dissertation on the topic of strong female bodies in Victorian-era popular media. It addresses questions of gender, identity, and power that continue to be pressing concerns for current feminist criticism.

The New Media Lab (NML) is open, both physically and virtually, to all Graduate Center students. The lab provides workspaces, technical advising, and community support for students to conceive and create groundbreaking digital and multimedia projects.
