The Freedman Fellows Program is actively seeking to partner with faculty who are interested in the type of scholarship that involves the use of digital tools or digital approaches to a set of materials.
In 2012, the Freedman Fellows Program will identify and support scholarly projects that meet all of the following conditions, i.e., the projects are: (1) currently underway, (2) involve some corpus of data that is of scholarly or instructional interest (e.g., data sets, digital texts, digital images, databases), (3) involve the use of digital tools and processes, and (4) have clearly articulated project outcomes.
Proposals may take any form, including direct answers to the questions as outlined, or take narrative form. Proposals shall not exceed three (3) pages and must include a 100-word abstract at the outset describing the project. If the project has a budget, that can be appended to the proposal and will not count against the three (3) page maximum.
In addition to the four (4) conditions outlined in paragraph two above; to be successful, Freedman Fellows proposals should answer the questions below.
