Call for Proposals

The Digital Humanities Committee is accepting proposals from faculty interested in developing a digital humanities course project. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis but, to ensure adequate implementation time, due by the first day of classes in the semester in which a project is to be implemented. We encourage earlier applications.

Grant Description

The Digital Humanities Committee accepts proposals from faculty interested in developing a digital humanities project for a course on a regular basis. Our goal is to promote hands-on projects that foster critical thinking through research-based digital methods. All faculty developing and assigning projects that relate to the humanities and the humanistic social sciences are eligible. Projects that carry the weight and significance of the traditional term paper are eligible for a $1000 award. Projects that amount to the equivalent of an assignment are eligible for a $500 award. Applicants should explain in their proposal how their course or assignments meet at least three Digital Humanities learning objectives. Please contact the Digital Humanities Action Team at DHAT@wlu.edu for an initial consultation. All applicants must meet with the DHAT before applying.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
