Course Development Grants

Course Development Grants

Finding ways to support instructors who want to incorporate digital humanities methods, tools, and perspectives into the undergraduate humanities curriculum is a goal for the School of Arts and Sciences and these course development grants are designed to do just that. Recipients will participate in workshops developed and taught by staff from the Price Lab and Penn Libraries’ division of Teaching, Research, and Learning. Instructors will then be assisted in adapting an existing course or developing a new one that satisfies criteria for counting toward the DH minor. If the course is rostered, they will receive $5,000 in research funds and up to an additional $5000 to hire an assistant to help with the special technical aspects of the course.

 

All humanities faculty are eligible to apply for these grants and we prioritize fields that are not yet represented in the DH curriculum such as gender and sexuality studies and African American studies.

 

Proposals must be received no later than mid-way through the semester prior to when the course is expected to be taught. We expect to award three course development grants per academic year. Contact Stewart Varner, Managing Director, if you have any questions at svarner@upenn.edu.
