Transatlantic program for collaborative work in the field of digital humanities – Call 2016
Deadline : 16 May 2016
The Fondation Maison des Science de l’Homme has published the third call of its grant program in digital humanities. Thanks to a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, FMSH will co-finance transatlantic collaborative projects in the field of the digital humanities.
To strengthen its activity in the broad sphere of Digital Humanities, the FMSH seeks at present to implement a new international program of “digital philology”. To date, funded interactions in this area have been limited to exchanges within Europe. The purpose of this proposal is to create a formal organizational and funding structure for collaboration between the US and Europe in “digital literary studies”. For too long, Europe’s major projects in the digital humanities have been on a different track, as it were, from American projects. The present initiative is intended to help US and European researchers work together in an entirely new way in the field of digital literary studies, to share knowledge and methods, disseminate common practices and tools, and publicize their works.
The Program will support only research projects whose goal is to set up or to strengthen collaborations between US and European universities. It will co-finance up to 80% of the total cost of the research project per year.
Applications due – 16 May 2016

Grant period commences – October 2016
