Making the most of the CDH Seed Grants


Reading Group

Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B

Each year, the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) welcomes librarians to submit proposals for the Seed Grants. The 2020 deadline is March 13.

Join our three librarians to learn more about how they conceived of their projects, wrote their proposals and implemented their projects:

  • Steve's project collects memories of public libraries from oral histories of prominent African Americans, which will be subjected to qualitative analysis to identify themes for use in writing a social history.

SEED grants help librarians to think through project ideas that are in the early stages, and also help build connections with faculty who are exploring related topics. CDH staff will also describe how to apply for a Dataset Curation grant, where grantees learn best practices for working with humanities data and publish their own original dataset. Bring your questions and ideas along!
