2012 Freedman Fellows Announced
Congratulations to the 2012 Freedman Fellows Program Award Recipients whose proposals aim to integrate new technologies & information sources. The program requirements for innovative scholarly or creative projects are reflected in their winning proposals, and the Fellows will also serve as a model for the program's efforts to build a learning community around digital scholarship.
All award winners plan to use digital platforms to further understand & expand their work, and as one fellow says, to "forge collaboration across disciplines." A program that has awarded over $100,000 to further digital scholarship, the Freedman Fellows Award Program welcomes the 8th group of fellows:
• John Grabowski, Associate Professor, History
• Brian Gran, Associate Professor, Sociology
• Susanne Vees-Gulani, Associate Professor, Modern Languages & Literatures
• Stephen Hefling, Professor, Music
• Paul Iversen, Associate Professor, Classics
2012 Fellows will meet this spring and also throughout the year, sharing experiences with the other fellows...and beyond. They'll also present their progress in a series of events that will be open to anyone with an interest in their projects. Interested audiences will see GIS mapping applied to child trafficking in NE Ohio, or learn more about the classics & the Antikythera Mechanism. A wealth of information about Mahler's works will reach global scholars, Cleveland's history will find a new future in its past & become even more interactive, and German culture will be expanded from a published print work. Congratulate the new Fellows & watch for news updates!
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.
