University of Washington (Seattle, WA 98105-6613)
Kathleen M. Woodward (Project Director: May 2008 to March 2014)
Digital Humanities Commons

Endowment to support faculty and student fellowships and graduate courses on digital humanities, other humanities programs, and a part-time research assistant.

With a $625,000 Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a successful match of $1,875,000 to establish an endowment of $2,500,000, the Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington will create the Digital Humanities Commons. The goal is to seed and strengthen work in the digital humanities, with three objectives: the animation of knowledge; the public circulation of scholarship; and the historical, social, and cross-cultural understanding of digital culture. Each year the endowment will support: summer faculty fellowships emphasizing collaborative projects; summer digital dissertation fellowships; modest funds for digital tools; three one-credit graduate courses on digital scholarship; a lecture by a seminal visiting scholar; and funds for an hourly research assistant. We will fold our work from the Digital Humanities Commons into our programs in the public humanities, a prime mission of the Simpson Center.
