Following Monday’s post on services available in the Digital Scholarship & Curriculum Center, we would like to spotlight the funding available through the Digital Scholarship Fellows Program. In collaboration with the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, the DSCC supports faculty scholarship involving digital tools and open publishing.
Past and current projects include oral history collections, mapping, and digital archiving of research data, including laboratory drawings and microscopy, photographic documentation, and art and archaeological collections.
The program provides project funding and technical advising, training for you and your student collaborators on relevant technologies, and opportunities for developing your digital humanities/digital scholarship knowledge and skill sets and sharing your work at local and national conferences. Faculty have used project funding to hire student research assistants, buy necessary equipment or software, or hire web developers/designers.
Past Digital Scholarship Fellow Sufia Uddin went on to receive an NEH grant to continue developing her Life in the Sundarbans Mangrove Forest digital humanities project, as well as a book contract with a publisher who specializes in born-digital, peer-reviewed, open-access monograph publishing.
As part of the program, current Digital Scholarship Fellow Ariella Rotramel, program director Lyndsay Bratton, and rising senior Lydia Klein recently attended the Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS) to work with an expert on oral history collections in preparation for Rotramel’s oral history interview project with casino cocktail servers.
We accept project and budget proposals on a rolling basis. Contact program director Lyndsay Bratton (email@example.com) with ideas and questions.
