I-CHASS receives a major NEH grant

Congratulations to the UIUC and the University of South Carolina.

The Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) at the University of South Carolina have collaborated to win a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Institutes for Advanced Topics in Digital Humanities (IATDH) grant award in the amount of $259,588.00 to support a project called the Humanities High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HpC).

HpC will engage humanities scholars in a year-long collaboration with computing specialists in order to: 1) receive a comprehensive education in four computational concentrations; 2) receive instruction in digital humanities project design and management; 3) obtain hands-on experience with a variety of technical platforms; 4) work with experts to outline pilot explorations in at least one area of computational concentration; and 5) join a year-long virtual community where scholars will support their peers in authoring digital humanities projects.
