We are delighted to announce the latest digital humanities research awards granted to University of Cambridge researchers and staff:

Digital Resources Awards

Rebecca Naylor / Lizzy Ennion-Smith / Michael Loy (Classics / Pembroke College / British School at Athens)

Digital Thessaly: Reuniting the Alan Wace Archive | This project is digitising early C20th research notebooks from three separate archives + linking to the gazetteer

Research Network Awards

Robert Dorschel / Stefanie Felsberger (Sociology / Gender Studies)

Technology & New Media Research Cluster | This network covers many research topics, including digital labour, digital media cultures, AI ethics, tech workers, automation, environmental impacts as well as the economic transformations.

Project Incubation Awards

Andy Corrigan (Cambridge University Library)

Locating Historic Landscapes | This project focuses upon the integration of 1500 IIIF images from Cambridge Digital Library into the Smapshot platform. This will also enable the creation of a quantized-mesh digital terrain model of the UK.

Ronald Haynes (UIS)

Dimensions of Darwin/Darwin 3D Project | This project involves multi-disciplinary examples to create a proof-of-concept virtual museum for collections relating to Charles Darwin.

Bid Development Awards

Alexis Litvine (History)

Gaming the Industrial Revolution | This funding will help prepare a bid to develop an innovative approach to game-based learning, which will benefit students, teachers, and game designers. It will deliver a game prototype that articulates multiple causal chains in a game format, enabling students to explore causal links iteratively through play to discover and formalise the relationship between the games’ variables on their own in a form school setting.

Laura Moretti (FAMES)

The digital turn in early modern Japanese literature | This project asks specific research questions designed to move the field forward by addressing empirical, methodological, and critical considerations.
