Call for Proposals: 2019-20 FHI-NCCU DH Fellowships

The Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI) at Duke University invite applications from North Carolina Central University faculty for the 2019-2020 FHI-NCCU Digital Humanities Fellowships. Up to 4 awards are available.

The FHI-NCCU Digital Humanities Fellowship program is designed to increase the use of digital humanities in the classroom. The program consists of a series of trainings/workshops, to be held at both Duke and NCCU, over the course of the 2019-20 academic year. Workshops will be geared toward both the theoretical and practical aspects of the digital humanities. FHI-NCCU DH faculty fellows will be required to attend all workshops and are expected to create a new course or significantly revise an old one for inclusion in their regular teaching cycle. Starting 2019-20, we also plan to incorporate occasional reading group sessions on DH scholarship, open to both current and previous Fellows.

Each 2019-20 fellow will receive up to $2,000 in project funds, which may be used for software, hosting services, minor equipment (e.g. digital recorders, video cameras), consultant fees (e.g. web designers), as well as conference travel. In addition, fellows will each receive a $500 honorarium for presenting their work-in-progress at a year-end symposium (2020 date to be determined).

All interested faculty should submit VIA QUALTRICS the following: name, department, a project title, a CV, and a 400- to 600-word proposal that outlines how they intend to incorporate the digital humanities into the classroom setting and, if applicable, their research agenda. Applications Close on September 30, 2019 at 11:59pm.
