EH Awarded Mellon Foundation Grant
Bard College has been awarded an $800,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the College’s Experimental Humanities initiative. Support from the Mellon Foundation will transform Experimental Humanities at Bard into a hub for scholarly, curricular, and artistic innovations.
Student Share Event for EH Projects
On Wednesday, May 7th, students from Experimental Humanities classes across the college shared their work in the form of presentations and exhibitions--including digital media, 3D video, and more.
Container Project Underway
EH is working with Henderson Labs, Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS), and architect Adam Kalkin to design a new Digital Media Lab for our campus. Generously supported by the Alden Trust, the lab will be sustainably built from recycled materials (including repurposed shipping containers) and is being developed by Bard students, faculty, and staff. This space will serve as an incubator for further collaboration and experimentation with media within the Bard community. (Image: a Kalkin QuikHouse; more designs here.)
The Experimental Humanities initiative is now hiring two Mellon Post-doctoral Fellows and a Digital Projects Coordinator. (Application deadline for both positions: December 15, 2014.)
We are also searching for a p/t Media Corp Fellow to lead a team of work study students for the the 2014-15 academic year.
