Bursaries

PhD students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs) whose papers are accepted for the EDAH 2018 Conference are eligible to apply for the following bursaries. You may apply to be considered for one these bursaries in the Proposal Submission process.

1. DARIAH-IE Prize Bursary

DARIAH-IE is pleased to announce a prize bursary of 500 euro for a PhD student or Early-Career Researcher who attends and presents a paper at the EADH 2018 Conference. Applicants for this bursary will be subject to the same peer-reviewing process as all conference proposals, and only those that pass the initial review stage will be eligible to be considered for the bursary.

To be eligible for consideration, proposals should address the general conference theme of “Data in Digital Humanities”, but in doing so should also address a topic of relevance to one of the working groups of DARIAH, a pan-European infrastructure for arts and humanities scholars working with computational methods. These include topics such as:

  • Analysing and linking biographical data
  • Community engagement
  • Ethics and legality
  • Geohumanities
  • Guidelines and standards
  • Image science and media art research
  • Impact factors and success criteria
  • Lexical resources
  • Mediaevalist sources
  • Sustainable publishing of (meta)data
  • Text and data analytics
  • Thesaurus maintenance
  • Visual media and interactivity
  • Digital methods and practices
  • Digital numismatics
  • Women writers in history
