Framingham State University American Rescue Plan Proposal

The creation of six digital humanities fellowships for contract faculty whose courses were cut due to the pandemic, and the development of a digital humanities center. 

Framingham State University (FSU) aims to respond to COVID-19 pandemic-induced reductions in students, personnel, and operating budgets that have threatened recent digital humanities (DH) and Special Collections and Archives initiatives. In particular, FSU proposes developing a DH center that will support its recently developed interdisciplinary DH minor and further existing DH projects, including the Modern American Poetry Site. Six DH Faculty Fellows will receive funding to work on semester-long DH projects, selected through a competitive process, with priority given to contingent humanities faculty members that propose projects promoting “A More Perfect Union” and that draw on digitized Special Collections and Archives materials. Student interns and assistants, as well as outside consultants, will support this work. The proposed activities foreground the importance of DH for developing practical skills and for enabling new forms of humanistic inquiry in a diverse American society.
