Dartmouth Digital Humanities Summer Residency

Call for Proposals
Digital Humanities Summer Residency 2016

Dartmouth ITS (Information Technology Services) and the Dartmouth College Library are
seeking faculty applications for the 2016 Digital Humanities Summer Residency. Piloted in 2015
at the Arts and Humanities Resource Center, the Summer Residency program is an opportunity
for a selected faculty member to spend the summer term planning, building, and publishing a
digital humanities project in collaboration with technical and subject area experts from across
Dartmouth. All proposals are welcome. We will work to expand and promote the Resident’s
project, whether still in the planning phase or already in development.

The Digital Humanities Summer Residency provides up to $10,000 for hardware, software,
student assistants, outreach, and professional travel, plus targeted staff support for:
1. Project planning and management
2. Resource acquisition
3. Digital infrastructure
4. Outreach and publicity
5. Curricular integration
6. Project preservation
Project leaders chosen for the Summer Residency should expect to commit to a schedule of
weekly meetings and to participate fully in the development and execution of their project. A
memo of understanding detailing outcomes and deliverables will be agreed upon before the
start of summer term.

For an example of a previous project, please watch the short video that was produced for
Multimedia in the Long Eighteenth Century . MMLEC was led by Scott Sanders, Assistant
Professor of French, and was selected as the focus of the AHRC Residency Program in Summer
2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC4wFWv1ee0

9, 2016.
