Dear all,

this call for proposals from the AHRC seems tailor-made for projects looking to develop corpora or corpus tools.

Digital Transformations in the Arts and Humanities - Big Data Projects Call

The AHRC is pleased to invite proposals for projects to explore Big Data from an Arts and Humanities perspective. The AHRC has a total of 4m capital funding available under this call. As a main output, these research projects should produce a tangible asset that sustains beyond the life of the project.

This call forms part of the Digital Transformations in the Arts and Humanities theme, and proposals must both compliment and add value to the core aims of the theme, and previous research funded through the theme. The call aims to address some of the challenges that arise from working with big data, as well as asking interesting questions of data, and producing innovative and creative assets for future Arts and Humanities research.

Funding for either smaller projects of up to 100k, or larger projects of up to 600k is available on a fEC basis, with the AHRC meeting around 80% of the fEC. Awards should last for a maximum of 15 months and will be expected to start on 1 January 2014 and finish by 31 March 2015.
