Seed grant opportunity: Collaborative Research Tornado

Friday, October 24
1pm - 4pm
​The Commons, Spooner Hall

Does your research incorporate computational methods? Might your research be further invigorated by expertise from a wholly different discipline? Are you interested in working across disciplines (humanistic and non-humanistic) with faculty and graduate students from other disciplines who do too? 

This month, the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH) is hosting a Digital Humanities Tornado, a research networking session aimed at developing internal grant proposals based in interdisciplinary collaboration between KU faculty (staff and grad students also welcome). The event is intended to bring researchers together to develop proposals for seed grants of up to $15,000 in the Digital Humanities and all allied fields, including but not limited to Computer Science and Information Technology, genomics, geography, law, journalism, social sciences and other fields. 

The IDRH Co-Directors, Advisory Board and facilitators Germaine Halegoua (Film & Media Studies) and Jonathan Lamb (English) invite you to participate in this brainstorming session on October 24 from 1-4pm at The Commons in Spooner Hall.

Refreshments will be served. Final proposals for seed grants of up to $15,000 are due Monday, December 1.  Please see the seed grant guidelines for more information. SEED GRANT APPLICANTS MUST BE PRESENT AT THE TORNADO TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL.
