SSHRC - Digging into Data Challenge, Round Three (Due: May 15)
The Digging into Data Challenge aims to address how "big data" changes the research landscape for the humanities and social sciences. Now that we have massive databases of materials available for research in the humanities and the social sciences --ranging from digitized books, newspapers, and music to information generated by Internet-based activities and mobile communications,administrative data from public agencies, and customer databases from private sector organizations-—what new, computationally-based research methods might we apply?
As the world becomes increasingly digital, new techniques will be needed to search, analyze, and understand these materials. Digging into Data challenges the research community to help create the new research infrastructure for 21st-century scholarship.
Applicants will form international teams from at least two of the participating countries. Winning teams will receive grants from two or more of the ten funding agencies and, two years later, will be invited to show off their work at a special conference sponsored by the ten funders.
