The Humanities Collaboratory is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2017 project grants. These grants will support intergenerational teams of faculty, staff, and students over a two-year period as they conduct innovative research that will produce new knowledge as well as model new collaborative methods for humanities scholarship.

The Book Unbound: Enhancing Multilayered Digital Publications through Collaboration” will bring together scholars from archaeology, writing studies, and cinema studies to work self-reflexively and collaboratively with information specialists on the study and presentation of digital publication practices, linking data, images, and text (PI: Anne Gere and Nicola Terrenato).

From Africa to Patagonia: Voices of Displacement” will analyze how language is entangled with cultural identity in a community that traces its roots to South African Boers displaced to Patagonia in Argentina, after the second Anglo-Boer War in 1902 (PI: Nicholas Henricksen).
