centerNet: Cyberinfrastructure for the Digital Humanities

A series of meetings, concluding with an international summit, to plan for future activities of an international network of digital humanities centers.

centerNet, a nascent international network of digital humanities centers, requests an NEH Digital Humanities Start Up Grant, Level II, to build a technical infrastructure and institutional framework that will enable it to play a vital role in developing both national and international cyberinfrastructure and become a stable, self-supporting organization. Included in the plan are a one-time world wide summit of digital humanities centers and funders to discuss possible emergent programs. We are aware that our application, which involves innovation in the form of cyberinfrastructure, will be different in kind from most other applications in this funding category, which will focus on individual tools or projects. But many of these very tools and projects themselves are dependent on the support of digital humanities centers, which have been described in the report of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Commission on Cyberinfrastructure as 'crucial seedbeds of innovation.'
