In our pilot capacity-building calls in 2014/15, Digital Humanities at Manchester has provided support and seedcorn funding for over 30 different projects by Faculty of Humanities researchers.
Since we began our pilot capacity-building calls in 2014/15, Digital Humanities at Manchester has provided support and seedcorn funding for over 35 different projects by Faculty of Humanities researchers. In 2015/16 we were also successful in securing 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.
Following our open calls in previous years, for the academic year 2016/17 we are focusing on developing new projects in two specific areas:
- innovative projects driving out of the Library’s extensive electronic collections
- cutting-edge research which can be developed in partnership with colleagues in the School of Computer Science (including text mining, linked data, image processing, and data visualization)
For the academic year 2016/17, the new project cycle will begin with our Digital Humanities Colloquium 2016/17 at the end of semester one where we will present exciting new work in these areas. This will be followed by a formal call for expressions of interest to be published in early 2017.
Calls for funding
Further information about these calls will be available soon.
