The Office of Digital Research and Scholarship supports the development of digital humanities projects through training, consultation, and project management. If you are interested in proposing a digital humanities project to the Libraries, you can apply to be a collaborator by filling out the digital project proposal (you can download it here) and submitting it to Sarah Stanley. The process for taking on new projects is as follows:
- The Project Director (you!) drafts the proposal
- Project Director workshops the proposal with a DH specialist in the libraries
- Project Director presents a finalized proposal to University Libraries’ Digital Project Review Team
- Library determines level of support for project (consultation? set-up? hosting and maintenance? project management?)
- For accepted projects, charter is drafted
- Implementation begins!
Digital Project Incubator
PEN & Inc (Project Enhancement Network & Incubator) is a digital project development cohort that occurs once a semester. This space is designed to test out project ideas, develop a strong project proposal, and explore strategies to make a successful project.
We recommend applying for the project incubator if you are interested in going through the project proposal process in a hands-on and cohort-based environment. We accept applications for the fall semester in May and the spring semester in October.
The application for the Fall 2017 Incubator is now open! The application only requires a short paragraph or two describing your project, some information about your goals and needs, and some information about yourself. Applications close August 1st.
