10 April 2016Faculty Programs   Announcing the 2016 DH@CC Grant Winners

We are excited to announce the 2016 Faculty Programs Recipients!

The selection committee, comprised of faculty from across the 5C’s and members of the DH@CC staff, received over thirty applications for our 2016 programs and choosing our final group of recipients was a difficult process. Digital Humanities at the Claremont Colleges (DH@CC) takes an expansive and inclusive approach: scholars who use digital methods in their teaching, research or publication and/or are considering the digital, as humanists, in their teaching, research or publication.

The Summer Institute recipients are: Tanja Srebotnjak, Erika Dyson, Nancy Macko, Todd Honma, Paul Faulstich, Tamara Venit-Shelton, Sarah Sarzynski, Char Miller, Virginie Duzer, and Kyla Tompkins.

The Course Development recipients are: Vivien Hamilton, Anne Harley, Kathleen Yep, Harmony O'Rourke and Ruti Talmor, Ethel Jorge, Feng Xiao, Dru Gladney, and Jonathan Petroupoulos.

Check back to hear more about their projects!

2 February 2016Faculty Programs   Apply for the 2016 Digital Course Development Grant Cycle!

As the DH@CC Mellon grant is focused largely on pedagogy, one of its major activities is Digital Course Development. The DH@CC initiative offers competitive Digital Course Development grants of $6,000 to 5C professors who will use the funds to develop or redesign courses that focus on or make use of digital tools. The grant cycles will take place over three years and result in a robust offering of up to 25 DH courses which will be taught at least twice during the life of the DH@CC Mellon grant.

Faculty who are awarded Digital Course Development grants may also apply for funds to hire undergraduate or graduate student assistants to collaborate with. With the help of the Honnold Library staff, students and faculty will together design and implement digital media projects that further enable their DH courses to succeed in the classroom.

Application is closed

The deadline to apply is Sunday, March 13, 2016.... Continue reading
