CEDAR (Collaborative Digital Research in the Humanities) is a UK-based, AHRC-funded collaborative research training scheme for PhD students. It aims to
1. improve understanding and expertise of PhD students in the Humanities in the use of (collaborative) hypermedia tools,
2. bring together Humanities PhD students in this area in a way that will ensure current and future peer-led development in digital humanities, and to
3. offer examples of good practice and innovation in the use of new technologies in the Humanities.
All Arts and Humanities PhD students currently registered at UK universities are invited to attend. The workshops are free of charge, and grants may be available of up to £35.00 per person per seminar for travel and/or accommodation costs. There are 17 travel bursaries available per session. Applications by AHRC-funded PhD students will be given preference provided they are submitted by 15 October 2009. All other applications will be considered on a first-come-first-serve basis. The final deadline, after which no further applications will be considered, is 31st October 2009.
Sessions 1 to 3 ran in the academic year 2008/09. Some of the material covered will be taught again in 2009/10 but each session will also feature a completely new strand for those students who have attended sessions in the first year.
