Digital Humanities Course Development Grants Due
December 6, 2014
The Carolina Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) is soliciting proposals for digital humanities course development grants. Current funds will be devoted toward graduate courses, but applicants may also propose courses at mixed, graduate/undergraduate levels.
Awards will consist of a $5,000 summer stipend. Note that stipends are subject to reductions related to university benefits, taxes, etc. Applicants may request up to an additional $1,000 for professional development pertaining to creating the course. Applicants should include a budget detailing how any requested professional development funds will be used (e.g., for specific workshops or training).
CDHI Curricular grants might be used to:
- Develop a course focused on activities or topics associated with the digital humanities
- Extend the reach of digital humanities course offerings beyond campus to non-degree seeking students–e.g., through hybrid or online options or through summer school
- Explore and implement pedagogical innovation in a course through digital tools and methods
- Implement digital activities to facilitate team teaching and/or interdisciplinary exchange
- Integrate experiential work with digital materials and activities into a course
- Develop a course that explores multiple modalities of digital activities–e.g., the visual, aural, video, performance
- Create a course that engages the transformative potentials for digital humanities–political, social, cultural, scholarly.
All tenure track and fixed term faculty at the University who are eligible to teach graduate level courses may apply.
Award recipients agree to
- Create a new or revise an existing course that can be taken for graduate credit
- Consult with the CDHI Curriculum Committee and Director regarding the development of the course
- Work as advisors (as appropriate) with course participants pursuing the Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities
- Deliver a report to the CDHI Curriculum Committee detailing the course development activities, the disbursement of funds, and the outcomes of the grant-supported efforts during the grant cycle
- Obtain Chair’s approval and agree to offer the course at least three times in the five years following the receipt of the funds, starting with the 2015-16 academic year.
Submit a current cv and proposal of no more than two pages to Daniel Anderson no later than 11:59 PM on December 6th.
