Grant Writing for Digital Humanities
Facilitated by Dr. Matthew Gold, Associate Professor of English and Digital Humanities at CUNY, this workshop will engage participants in strategies for locating and writing grants to support digital humanities initiatives. Digital Humanities has been defined as a “field of study, research, teaching, and invention concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities.” (Kirschenbaum, 2010) It is a broad field that encompasses, but not limited to, scholarship presented in digital formats, enabled by digital tools and methods, focused on digital technology and culture, and expanded through experimentation with digital technology. This workshop is sponsored by the Teaching Learning and Technology Roundtable and the Digital Humanities committee at Seton Hall.
