The Winter 2015 competition is open! Get your proposals in by January 30, 2015 at 5pm!
The Digital Arts Engine is an incubator program for new student-led research and entrepreneurship. It asks the Arts Students to engage with the questions of how new technologies and media can interact with more traditional humanities research interests and practices. The funding allows students an opportunity for students to try their hand at making new tools and applications, or expressing themselves through digital media, in ways that are intellectually provoking as well as rigorous.
As Stéfan Sinclair, Director of the McGill Centre for Digital Humanities, puts it: “The Arts are largely focused on understanding and expressing the human condition from multiple perspectives – the Digital Arts Engine is a wonderful venue for students to recognize and share their valuable knowledge in a digital context.”
The competition is open – Arts Undergraduate Students can find more information at http://digihum.mcgill.ca/engine/.
