Digital humanities training for academics

(19 March 2015)

To help develop digital humanities capacity among academics within the Faculty, a limited number of small grants for professional development in digital humanities skills are available.

These grants are designed to cover training, travel, internships and networking.

The deadline for applications is Monday 30th March 2015 and staff from all five Humanities schools are encouraged to apply.

Digital humanities is an area of research and teaching at the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities.

Applications will be ranked on merit based on the extent to which they:

  • Demonstrate the potential for digital humanities to make a meaningful contribution to the applicant’s School’s research culture.
  • Improve the chances of securing external funding
  • Increase the academic and/or non-academic impact of the individual/group’s research; and
  • Provide good value for money.

Funding decisions will be announced by Friday 17 April.

It is open to all research-active staff (that is those with research listed in their employment contract as an expectation), including postdoctoral researchers. Two or more individuals may submit a joint application. Exceptions to the eligibility criteria may be considered on a case by case basis.
