Resilient Networks to Support Inclusive Digital Humanities Project
“Resilient Networks to Support Inclusive Digital Humanities (DH),” is a new project that was jointly conceived by Geneva Henry, GW’s dean of libraries and academic innovation and Ben Vinson III, the dean of the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with Rice University, Davidson College, and Prairie View A&M University. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded the project a $500,000 grant to address the challenge of providing diverse perspectives, shared pedagogical approaches, and partnerships between librarians, students, and scholars to advance digital humanities (DH) scholarship. This two-year project will establish a network of institutions to share and build expertise in and support for digital humanities instruction and research.
This generous support from the Mellon Foundation will allow faculty, students, and librarians to collaborate to develop shared DH curriculum modules, participate in training opportunities, and form research project teams that include students, faculty, and librarians from across the participating institutions. Providing students with hands-on experience in applying the DH concepts they have learned to a real research endeavor will advance their understanding of both the research methods and computational techniques needed for successful inquiries. We hope to create DH networks that are resilient and diverse, supporting long-term sustainability with minimal new institutional resource investments.
