We are pleased to announce that our 2017/18 Travel and Training Call for all research staff across the Faculty is now open.
Since we began our pilot capacity-building calls in 2014/15, Digital Humanities at Manchester has provided support and seedcorn funding for over 40 different projects by Faculty of Humanities researchers.
In 2015/16 we secured UMRI funding to build closer links with the School of Computer Science, with our UMRI pump-priming project 2016: Fostering Digital Humanities Collaborations with Computer Science. In 2016/17 we focused on developing new projects in two specific areas: innovative projects driving out of the Library’s extensive electronic collections and cutting-edge research to be developed in partnership with colleagues in the School of Computer Science (including text mining, linked data, image processing, and data visualization). In 2017/18, we continue to build on these collaborations, with a new funding scheme in partnership with the John Rylands Research Institute (JRRI).
Please find below details of two new calls to all researchers in the Faculty of Humanities, together with a separate call for PGR students. The closing date for all calls is 26 February 2018.
