Full Proposal Guidelines (PDF)

The School of Humanities and Sciences and Academic Computing Services invite faculty and graduate students in all areas of the humanities to submit a research project proposal.

Projects will be selected on the basis of their significance and contribution to the scholar’s disciplinary field, theoretical and methodological sophistication, creativity of approach and technical innovation.

Suggested topics and areas include, but are not limited to:

  • advanced data visualization applications
  • computer gaming and the humanities
  • historical geographic information systems (hGIS)
  • multimedia research
  • network analysis (geographic, social, citation, etc.)
  • textual analysis and text mining

Interdisciplinary projects are especially encouraged.

Proposals will be evaluated by members of the Digital Humanities Steering Group/review committee for project support to begin starting in the subsequent academic quarter.
