The Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR), a division of the Stanford University Libraries, is pleased to announce a Call for Proposals from Stanford faculty members for research collaborations in the digital humanities and computational social sciences. Projects should focus on the production of digitally enabled scholarship designed to analyze, visualize, or simulate an interesting problem in the humanities or social sciences. CIDR support in these collaborations will consist of dedicated software development, project planning, and project management efforts.
We expect and encourage proposal submissions that represent the widest range of topics, theories, and disciplines. We welcome ideas that push the boundaries of conventional research methods and that introduce new and sophisticated modes of analysis and visualization. Successful projects will make novel contributions to the scholar’s field, will be theoretically and/or methodologically novel, and will be creative and technically innovative. We will look favorably upon projects that cross disciplines and that produce tools and methods that are generalizable and reusable by others.
