What can sixteenth-century maps teach us about climate change? How do musical patterns feature in the sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti? How do Chinese national minorities feature in the collections of state-run Chinese archives?
These are just some of the questions inspiring the work of this year’s recipients of the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) Dataset Curation Grants, which support Princeton affiliates in learning about the analytical and technical practices of working with humanities data. Collaboration is critical to many of this year’s projects. Several grants went to teams comprising a researcher and a Princeton University Library (PUL) staff member; other recipients plan to take on undergraduate and graduate researchers for their project.
