HHPC and T-REX in the News

 

In the May 8th edition of HPCwire, John West wrote a piece called “High Performance Humanities” that discusses the NEH’s new HHPC initiative.  It was great to see coverage of the new initiative in a leading HPC publication.  One of our stated goals here in the Office of Digital Humanities is to inspire collaborations across disciplines.  My hope is that the computing specialists who are regular readers of HPCwire will take an interest in the many computing challenges we have here in the humanities.  In a similar vein, I also note that the Text Analysis Developers Alliance has just announced a new competition called T-REX that hopes to inspire text analysis projects, including those that take advantage of high performance computing.  Over the next few years it will be interesting to see what HPC can bring to humanities research.

NEH Posts Guidelines for NEH Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers

I'm very happy to say that the NEH's Division of Research has just posted the guidelines for our new "NEH Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers" program ("FDHC" for short).  The NEH first announced this program back at the CNI conference in December of 2007, but now the full guidelines are available.  I would encourage all humanities centers to check out this new program and consider applying.  The deadline is September 15th, 2008.  In a nutshell, FDHC allows centers to apply for funding to bring in a visiting fellow to work on one or more humanities projects. [Edit: As of 4/29/2010, the Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers program is no longer offered by the NEH].
