Who should apply?
Teams organized around DH projects
Applications should come from teams that have formed around a local project clearly served by the team’s participation in DHSI. The project may be any local initiative related to the digital humanities and anchored in some way in local teaching and learning, involving a partnership of local faculty and staff. The following is a non-exhaustive list of some examples of types of projects that could be proposed:
- a course incorporating a digital humanities method/approach/project
- a campus-wide digital humanities faculty development initiative
- a library-based digital humanities project/resource/service
- an exploratory planning process for local support of digital humanities at one’s institution
- Any faculty or staff from an AMICAL member institution may form a team to apply. Teams must include at least 2 members.
- To be eligible for financial support (airfare and accommodations), the institution must be a Full or Affiliate AMICAL member. Network members may apply to participate in cohort activities but are not eligible for financial support.
- One team may apply per institution. Exceptions will only be made in the case of deans themselves applying in addition to a local team.
Applicants should be faculty or staff who seek to pursue, as a team, some kind of project on their campus related to the digital humanities. The teams should be composed of at least two of the following roles: faculty, librarians, technologists, deans.
This initiative targets in particular teams that demonstrate a readiness to develop sustained local digital humanities initiatives with some kind of institution-wide impact. To this end, participants in academic leadership roles (deans, department heads, faculty development coordinators) are particularly encouraged to form a local team and apply to join this cohort.
Teams without someone in an academic leadership role are also welcome to apply, in particular if they can demonstrate breadth of impact or sustainability for their project.
