Digital Humanities prize workshop supports UCL Connections

7 May 2013

Funding of £5,000 has been awarded to the winning entry from the UCL Digital Humanities month prize workshop. The project, titled ‘UCL Connections’ aims to create signposts across campus, which will encourage visitors to find out more about the space around them, and share their experiences online via an app.

UCL Connections was designed by Jia Liu (UCL Archaeology), Emma Norris (UCL Epidemiology & Public Health), George Neris (UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage, Bartlett) and Peter Williams (UCL Information Studies) as part of UCL Digital Humanities month, supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction. This support was made possible thanks to an award to the Grand Challenges from the UCL Annual Fund, which relies on the contributions of UCL alumni to support scholarships, research and work across UCL.

The workshop aimed to stimulate new insight into interaction between digital technology and the humanities, and facilitate greater collaboration between academics working in different disciplines. Digital Humanities month was convened by Melissa Terras, Co-director of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities.
