McGill Digital Humanities currently offers several programs to foster digital research and training.
The Engine is a micro-funding program sponsored by the Faculty of Arts for undergraduate digital creation and scholarship. Funding is competitive – students propose projects which must be completed within the academic year. The only condition is that their work be presented at a Digital Humanities event. For more information see http://digihum.mcgill.ca/engine/.
The Winter 2015 Competition closes Jan 30, 5pm.
McGill Digital Humanities is offering a series of four workshops on Digital Humanities Research in partnership with the McGill Library to provide an overview of various digital scholarship approaches and hands-on training. Each of the workshops will have a different focus to address different needs and levels of students & researchers.
McGill Digital Humanities operates a pool of qualified and vetted Research Assistants for digital projects based at the University. This service has two main objectives – to provide and experience funding for McGill students with digital skills (broadly interpreted) and to make finding such students easier for McGill researchers.
Within its first year of operation (2012-2013), the Pool attracted over 60 students, and placed many of them with McGill researchers in several faculties.
