IDAH Summer Incubator
This year’s IDAH Summer Incubator program will follow a two-step application process: 1) required consultations and 2) followed by an invitation to apply as we explore supporting a cohort of scholars engaging in public digital arts and humanities projects, specifically projects that reflect community partnerships around archiving, recovery, and/or repatriation.
After two year’s of a fully remote Incubator, we will design the program in a hybrid fashion with a mixture of in-person and remote synchronous and asynchronous events. The full schedule is still in progress, you can refer to past year’s schedules to get a sense of how we structured a fully in-person and fully remote Incubator. We ask that you are fully available to participate July 17 - 28, 2023.
Given the change of scope this year, we are requesting that interested applicants with a community-oriented digital project, schedule 30 minute consultations with us the week of February 6 and February 13. Depending on the outcomes of the consultations, the next step will be an invitation to apply. Invited applications are due on March 10, 2023. Successful applicants will be contacted in early May.
To recap, the 2023 Summer Incubator will follow a two-step application process:
- Consultations are required before applications are submitted, the week of February 6 and February 13, 2023
- Invitation-only applications are due March 10, 2023; Links to apply will be sent the week of February 20th.
The IDAH Summer Incubator extends IDAH's mission of support for digital-methods teaching, research and creative projects to a longer-format, intensive workshop that provides cross-campus resources for faculty and graduate students engaged in digital arts & humanities projects. The Summer Incubator is designed to help faculty/research scientists/scholars and graduate students identify digital tools and publishing platforms, coordinate with librarians and technology specialists, estimate project costs and duration, prototype a project component, and consider opportunities for external funding.
The IDAH Summer Incubator program is designed to ensure a well-planned, phased approach to digital project development to promote success in each of the steps in a successful internal-to-external funding pipeline.
