Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship Summer 2018
Sunday, June 10, 2018 - 12:00am

The Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship Planning Committee welcomes proposals from project teams who would like to join us for ILiADS 2018! Project teams can include faculty, students, librarians, and technologists. Given its liberal arts focus, and longstanding relationship with Undergraduate Network for Research in the Humanities (UNRH), priority is given to proposals that include student collaborators.

At ILiADS, ideas grow through iterative design and development. During an intensive week of collaborative production activities, teams build upon existing digital pedagogical and scholarly projects or launch new ones. ILiADS Liaisons guide teams in project management, provide necessary expertise, and advise on how to sustain the project into the future.

This year at the host institution of Occidental College, local student-faculty-staff collaborations facilitated by the Center for Digital Liberal Arts (CDLA) have focused on immersive technologies (e.g. 360 video, VR, and photogrammetry), public display of scholarly content (e.g., Scalar), and computational analysis of texts. Occidental offers a particularly rich environment for projects in these areas, though proposal of all types, at any juncture, are welcomed.

As you prepare your submission, please follow the proposal guidelines. Examples of successful project proposal from the past are linked below. Completed proposals can be submitted to If you have questions in the interim, please email us at
