Subject: One Culture: Computationally Intensive Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences
One Culture: Computationally Intensive Research in the Humanities and
A Report on the Experiences of First Respondents to the Digging Into
June 12, 2012.
Today, at the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in Washington, DC,
the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) released One
Culture: Computationally Intensive Research in the Humanities and Social
Sciences. This report culminates two years of work by CLIR staff
involving extensive interviews and site visits with scholars engaged in
international research collaborations involving computational analysis
of large data corpora. These scholars were the first recipients of
grants through the Digging into Data program, led by the NEH, who
partnered with JISC in the UK, SSHRC in Canada, and the NSF to fund the
first eight initiatives. The report introduces the eight projects and
discusses the importance of these cases as models for the future of
research in the academy.
Funded by NEH Cooperative Agreement HC-50007-10.
