Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants

The U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the U.S.
Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) invite applications to
the Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants program. This program is designed
to encourage innovations in the digital humanities. By awarding
relatively low-dollar grants during the planning stages, the goal is to
identify projects that are particularly innovative and have the
potential to make a positive impact on the humanities. By having IMLS
co-sponsor this grant opportunity with the NEH, our hope is to spark
more collaborations among scholars, librarians, museum officials, and
computer scientists.

Deadlines: October 16, 2007 & April 2, 2008

The guidelines are available here:


There is one major change in this grant opportunity from last year that
I'd like to emphasize. Based on feedback from the digital humanities
community, we now have two levels of funding available:

LEVEL I START-UP: Awards of $5000 - $25,000. These are small grants
designed to fund brainstorming sessions, basic research, workshops,
early alpha-level prototypes, and initial planning.

LEVEL II START-UP: Awards of $25,001 - $50,000. These are larger grants
which can be used for more fully-formed projects that are ready to start
the first stage of implementation or the creation of working prototypes.

History Teaching Conference


The AHRC ICT Methods Network (www.methodsnetwork.ac.uk), which exists to
promote and support the use of advanced ICT methods in arts and humanities
research, is offering a limited number of bursaries to post-graduate
students who wish to present a paper at the conference 'Distributed
Ignorance and the Unthinking Machine: Computing in History Teaching'. The
conference takes place on 17 November at The National Archives, Kew, London,
and is organized by the UK branch of the Association of History and
Computing (AHC-UK).

Applications for bursaries are sought from post-graduate students registered
at UK Universities whose research interests are grounded in areas covered by
this years AHC-UK conference. These include: when and how you acquired your
computing skills, what support and training you had or would like to have
had, your perspective on the use of computers in history teaching and
identification of key computing skills that history graduates should have
and other areas which may be considered to be within the AHC's sphere of
interest. Applicants should submit a paper proposal via the AHC-UK website
in the first instance, see http://www.gla.ac.uk/centres/hca/ahc/conf.htm

applicants will be able to claim funds up to a total of =A3200 toward the=
of conference fees, accommodation and travel.
