What Kinds of Faculty Fellow Projects Can IDAH Support?
IDAH’s technical and intellectual support is intended to help faculty fellows address broad intellectual and creative issues in the digital arts and humanities.
Rather than providing technical support to facilitate one-time projects, performances, or exhibits, IDAH helps fellows assess how the use of emerging digital technologies can expand and sustain intellectual inquiry and creativity in their own work, and in the arts and humanities world generally, such as:
• Assessing how GIS mapping technology can allow spatial and temporal representation of data in the discipline of history
• Applying interactive web tools to create ethnographic experiences for anthropology classrooms
• Finding ways to archive the interactive interfaces created in virtual reality art exhibits
With the broad impact of a digital approach in mind, IDAH can help fellows integrate this approach into the technical and intellectual realization of their individual projects.
