Digging in Data Challenge grant projects develop and explore technologically inventive and computationally creative research methods that drill into massive data sets to arrive at new questions and surprising answers.
The science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields are --and will be--essential in a world that is increasingly dependent on digital technology for our social interactions, economic livelihood, national security, and grumpy cat memes. But this is not to say that the STEM fields have nothing to benefit from the humanities or that technological invention and innovation precludes the vital place humanities education and research has in a digital landscape.
We're embarking on this cool new project to digitize all our early grant records between 1965 (when the agency was founded) and 1980 (when we first began using a computer to process grants). I'd like to introduce you to Ann Sneesby-Koch, who is working right here in ODH HQ and helping us on this project. Ann has an MS in Information Science from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and an MA in Classical Studies from the University of Maryland. We're super-pleased to have her on board running this project for us. I've asked Ann to blog periodically on how her work is progressing. When done, you'll be able to search all NEH grants right back to our founding. Let me kick things off with just a bit of background on what we're doing.
Products, Prizes, and Media Coverage: A New Crowdsourcing Effort from the NEH Products, Prizes, and Media Coverage: A New Crowdsourcing Effort from the NEH
Over the course of the last 46 years as a humanities research agency, the NEH has funded thousands of grants. These grants often lead to amazing projects, including publications and “products” of all sorts. For example, NEH grants lead to award-winning books, films, journal articles, websites, dictionaries, conference papers, summer institutes, software programs, radio programs and so on. We thought it would be terrific to create a database of all these products and tie them back to the grants that funded them.
In the past few weeks, I’ve been following two big news stories involving NEH grantees.
We are very pleased to announce that, in partnership with the Joint Information System Committee (JISC) in the United Kingdom, NEH will be offering a second round of grants for the Transatlantic Digitization Collaboration program. The guidelines should be available later this month, but we wanted to alert potential applicants so that you could start developing the necessary partnerships.
