Thanks to a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation support is available now for faculty-led digital humanities projects. Various kinds of support are available, from sabbatical supplement grants to student research assistants, grants for travel to training opportunities, or for the purchase of databases and materials, among other things. The “Get Support” item on the menu above has details on what we can support and how to apply, and if you are unsure about whether what you have in mind falls under one of the existing categories, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Please note that August 23 is the deadline for applications for fall projects.

In other good news, Mattew Kochis joined the faculty of the College on July 1 as the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities. Matt holds a PhD in English Literature from the University of Tulsa (2013), and worked for two years as the project manager for a large digital humanities endeavor called the Modernist Journals Project. He has an office on the second floor of the Waidner-Spahr Library (right next to Robert Renaud’s), and would be delighted to talk to faculty about digital projects at all stages of conception and execution, grant applications, and related matters. His campus extension is 254-8018 and his email address is

Wishing you a relaxing and productive summer,
