The news below is from the European Association for Digital Humanities website:
The Open Knowledge Foundation in association with the Digital Humanities Quarterly is excited to announce the launch of the first ever Open Humanities Awards. There are €15,000 worth of prizes on offer for 3-5 projects that use open content, open data or open source tools to further humanities teaching and research. Whether you’re interested in patterns of allusion in Aristotle, networks of correspondence in the Jewish Enlightenment or digitising public domain editions of Dante, we’d love to hear about the kinds of open projects that could support your interest!
The Awards will be judged by a distinguished cast of eminent Digital Humanists including Professor Stefan Gradmann (Humboldt University), Dr Susan Schreibman (Trinity College Dublin). Professor Andrew Prescott (Kings College London), Professor David Robey, (University of Oxford), Dr Melissa Terras (University College London), Nicole Coleman (Stanford University Humanities Center), Dr Laurent Romary (INRIA).
