Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awards Hamilton College $800,000 (USA)
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, $800,000 in support of the Digital Humanities Initiative, a research and teaching collaboration in which new media and computing technologies are used to promote humanities-based research, scholarship and teaching, including curriculum development, across the liberal arts. This is one of the largest humanities grants ever received by Hamilton College. According to co-director Associate Professor of Africana Studies Angel David Nieves, DHi is 'a multi institutional project, a sustainable model to bring multiple faculties together to share in their research and to link departments that traditionally do not work together'
