The Association for Computers and the Humanities is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 Incubator Grants competition!
ACH Microgrants were established to reward enterprising ideas that serve the digital humanities community by building on existing ACH initiatives like ach.org, Digital Humanities Quarterly, and DH Answers. We especially value proposals from emerging scholars and DH practitioners that promise to expand the community, create new content or analyses of existing content, or build links with other DH initatives. Our call this year emphasized knowing our past, which was interpreted variously by our community. Thanks to everyone who applied.
