Mellon Research Initiative: Student Research Grants
DIGITAL TOOLS WORKSHOP: CALL FOR PROPOSALS (DUE 9/23)
All IFA students, including the Fall 2013 entering classes, are invited to submit proposals for projects using digital research tools. For students at the coursework stage, the project must be completed during the Fall 2013 semester, and also be approved by the instructor as contributing to coursework for a Fall 2013 course. For PhD students who have already completed coursework, the same schedule applies but the project must be approved by the student's adviser. Projects may be collaborative at the discretion of the instructor or adviser. Successful applicants will deliver a 20 minute presentation on their projects in a workshop on February 7, 2014.
Possible research tools include but are not restricted to: GIS, statistical analysis, image analysis, data visualization, and object imaging.
Successful applicants will be paired with appropriate graduate student mentors from other schools and departments across NYU who have expertise in the particular digital technology required to complete the project. Modest funding from the Mellon Research initiative will be made available in support of the projects.
Applications should clearly articulate:
--- why digital research tools are structurally central to the project
--- the art historical goals of the project
--- whether new data will be generated or new insights generated about existing data
In addition, applications must include an itemized budget.
Proposals should be submitted by September 23 at 12:00PM to Yaelle Amir at email@example.com and CC'd to Sarah Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Results will be announced on September 30. The matching of successful applicants with mentors will be completed by October 15.
