AWARDS ANNOUNCEMENT: May 3, 2016

2016 PROGRAM DATES: June 6-July 15, 2016

PROGRAM COORDINATOR: Chloe McLaren, cm647@cornell.edu  

Now in its fourth year, this summer program provides Cornell graduate students with hands-on experience using digital tools for humanities research and scholarly communication. Over a 6-week summer period, library staff will help fellows plan, develop, and execute small-scale digital projects related to their own research and teaching interests.No advanced technical skills will be necessary.  Sponsored by Cornell University Library and the Society for the Humanities, this program provides:

  • Tutorials in digital scholarship tools and communications platforms, tailored to participants’ interests and prior skills
  • Orienting readings and discussion of historical and current issues in digital humanities
  • An introduction to practical aspects of developing, implementing, and managing complex digital humanities projects, ranging from technical considerations to broader scholarly impact
  • Ongoing guidance and technical support for participants developing their own digital projects
  • A stipend ($1,000) 

We will support a cohort of 5 participants drawn from all areas of the humanities at Cornell.  The program entails a relatively small time commitment (10-15 hours/week, mostly afternoons), but requires that each participant:

  • Be present on the Cornell campus during the program dates 
  • Be a current Cornell PhD student working in the humanities
  • Have completed no more than 4 years in their graduate program at the time
  • Have the approval of their committee chairs (we will contact the chairs of successful applicants to secure permission)

We will consider applications from candidates at all levels of technical proficiency.
