Call for Proposals: 2014 Freedman Fellows Program
The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship is pleased to announce the 2014 Freedman Fellows Program for full-time faculty. The Freedman Fellows Program is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Kelvin Smith Library, and the Freedman Fellows Endowment established by Marian K. and Samuel B. Freedman and is open to all full-time CWRU faculty members.
This year, the Freedman Fellows Program will select a scholarly project or projects to support that best meet(s) established criteria. The submitted project must:
1. be currently underway
2. involve some corpus of data that is of scholarly or instructional interest (e.g., data sets, digital texts, digital images, databases)
3. involve the use of digital tools and processes
4. have clearly articulated project benchmarks and outcomes
Through the Freedman Center, the fellows program provides support for using emerging technologies at every stage of the project, from generating data to curating it. The Freedman Center staff assists fellows with using digital tools and processes for data-mining, textual analysis, geospatial information systems (GIS) mapping, and data visualization. Likewise, they help fellows with the more technical aspects of design, visualization, and presentation. Utilizing Digital Case, they assist with managing and curating research data: storage, preservation, analysis, and access. In the final stages, they consult with fellows about the available dissemination and publication options, and about using digital resources in teaching and learning.
This year the funding model is more flexible, providing a pool of funds that can be used to support projects of varying size. Proposed funding requests can range from $1K to a maximum of $15K. Use of funds is limited to supporting the expenses related to innovative scholarly or creative projects that meet the Freedman Fellows 2014 criteria. Fellows will also receive planning and project support.
Proposals are due Monday, March 31, 2014.
