The Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities is once again offering its $1,000 grant for the development of a course related to the Digital Humanities. Those proposals which pertain to undergraduate studies,have an interdisciplinary scope, use open-source tools, and/or include methods which are applicable to Digital Humanities as a whole will be given preference. The course may be in any humanities or closely-related discipline, and may cover specific topics within a discipline (e.g. 19th c. English literature), as long as at least 50% of the course content covers DH skills, methods, and tools. All proposed courses must be taught on the Lawrence or Edwards campus within 3 semesters of receiving funding. We expect to make up to three awards.All applicants who are selected for the program will be asked to participate in a one hour Digital Humanities curriculum workshop in late April or early May (TBA).
How to Apply: Interested participants are invited to submit a short proposal (two to three pages, double-spaced) that includes: (1) a narrative description of the new course, including a list of; (2) the course title and a (possible) course number; and, (3) a discussion of the potential impact you expect the course to have on KU’s digital humanities profile. The proposal should indicate whether or not the course is undergraduate or graduate, the expected enrollment, whether or not it is intended as a principal course, and the frequency with which it will be offered. It is expected that the course will be offered sometime during the next three semesters and that it will be offered at least three times within the next six-year period. Faculty from all humanities and related disciplines are invited to submit proposals.
