Digital Library, Language Learning, & Multimedia Services Center
Freedman Fellows 2011 Announced
The Freedman Center is very happy to announce the winners of the 2011 Freedman Fellows Program.
The Samuel B. and Marian K. Freedman Digital Library, Language Learning, and Multimedia Services Center is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelvin Smith Library. For the College of Arts and Sciences the Freedman Center is evidence of the College's commitment to the evolution of education and the integration of information technologies and digital tools in its curriculum, scholarship, and research. For KSL the Freedman Center is the culmination of a ten-year vision for a center that provides faculty, students, and staff the ability to utilize digital tools and technologies in their teaching and learning, and demonstrates the library's partnership value in developing new forms of digital research and scholarship.
The Freedman Fellows Program is strong evidence of the commitment of both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Library to revolutionizing research and scholarship at Case Western Reserve University. This year, the Freedman Fellows Program will distribute five (5) $3,000 awards to fulltime faculty applicants whose project proposals demonstrate methods by which scholarly endeavors can be undertaken using emerging digital tools and processes such as the use of data-mining, text-analytic techniques, geospatial information systems, and data visualization. These projects will serve as model forms of scholarship that encourage the use of new technologies in research, design, dissemination and publication, and which transform how knowledge can be created and how newly identified connections can be explored.
The following is a list of the 2011 Freedman Fellows Program Award recipients:
• Stephen Hefling, Professor, Department of Music;
