NEH/AHRC New Directions for Digital Scholarship in Cultural Institutions Call

AHRC is pleased to announce a call for applications to the NEH/AHRC New Directions for Digital Scholarship in Cultural Institutions programme.

The call is a joint initiative between the US National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the AHRC. This is the third call under AHRC’s ‘UK-US Collaboration for Digital Scholarship in Cultural Institutions’ programme, a 5 year, £7.5m initiative funded through UKRI’s Fund for International Collaboration. The programme aims to advance digital scholarship in cultural heritage organisations such as museums, libraries, galleries, and archives.

Funding will support collaborative teams in the UK and US that have the potential to deliver a transformational impact on digital methods and digital research in cultural institutions, bringing new approaches to the ways in which culture and heritage can be experienced by global audiences, opening new research frontiers and questions and advancing collections-based research methods for the 21st century.

Applications should address one or more of the following themes, or propose new areas of inquiry focused on digital scholarship and cultural institutions:

  • Employing machine learning and artificial intelligence in cultural institutions;
  • Fostering digitally-enabled participation;
  • Developing enhanced information on cultural institution visitors;
  • Creating and interrogating all document types and unlocking new data.

The deadline for applications will close at 4pm (UK time) on the 18 August 2020.
