Grant Description

As part of the Endowment-wide Digital Humanities Initiative, these grants support national or regional (multi-state) research and training programs on approaches in humanities computing. Through these programs, the NEH seeks to increase the number of humanities scholars using digital technology in their research and broadly disseminate knowledge about advanced technology applications relevant to the humanities. The projects may be a single opportunity or offered multiple times to different audiences, although the duration of a program should allow for full and thorough treatment of the topic. Today, complex data—its form, manipulation, and interpretation—is as important to humanities study as more traditional research materials. Datasets, for example, may represent digitized historical records, high-quality image data, or even multimedia collections, all of which are increasing in number due to the availability and affordability of mass data storage devices and international initiatives to create digital content. Moreover, extensive networking capabilities, sophisticated middleware applications, and new collaboration platforms are simultaneously providing and improving interactive access to and analysis of these data as well as a multitude of other resources. The goals of the Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program are the following: bring together humanities scholars and digital technology specialists from different disciplines to share ideas and methods that advance humanities research through the use of digital technologies; reflect on, interpret, and analyze new digital media, multimedia, and text-based computing technologies and integrate these into humanities research; prepare current and future generations of humanities scholars to design, develop, and use cyber-based tools and environments for research; devise new and creative uses for technology that offer valuable models that can be applied specifically to research in the humanities.
