NEH ODH: Digging into Data 2.0: June 16, 2011

The National Endowment for the Humanities Office of Digital Humanities has announced the second round of competition for its Digging into Data Challenge, which calls for cutting-edge humanities and social science research driven by advanced computation and data analysis. Applications are due by June 16, 2011.

Interested BSU Researchers, please contact your unit or department's Proposal Manager.

Teams of researchers are asked to consider how advanced computation can be used to change the nature of humanities and social science research methods and how advanced computation and data analysis techniques might help researchers ask new questions about the world.

Eligibility is open to groups of researchers in the information, library, archival, and computational sciences as well as the humanities and the social sciences. Each proposed project must include collaboration among two to four national teams, with each team representing one of the competition's participating countries (Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.). If multiple institutions from the same country are participating in a team, they must work together and designate one of the institutions as the team lead. Teams can only receive grants from a funder from their own country. For U.S. teams, awards will range from $25,000 to $125,000, or up to $175,000 if the team consists of two or more institutions.
The first Digging into Data competition, held in 2009, was so popular that funding was available for just eight percent of the 90 teams that applied. This round will be underwritten by four new sponsors, for a total of eight organizations contributing funding: NEH, the Institution of Museum and Library Services, and National Science Foundation in the U.S.; the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Economic and Social Research Council, and Joint Information Systems Committee in the United Kingdom; the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research; and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
