By Gretchen | September 26, 2013

Nine Large Grants have today been announced under the AHRC’s Science in CultureDigital Transformations and Translating Cultures themes. The successful grants are a collaboration across and beyond a number of arts and humanities disciplines and combining a number of UK and international institutions in addition to partner organisations from outside of the Higher Education sector.

The Digital Transformations Large Grants awards:

The Digital Panopticon: The Global Impact of London Punishments, 1780-1925, led by Professor Barry Godfrey at University of Liverpool awarded £1,719,324

‘Fragmented Heritage’ From the kilometre to the nanometre: Automated 3D Technology to Revolutionise Landscape, Site and Artefact Analyses led by Dr Randolph Donahue at the University of Bradford awarded £1,979,850

Transforming Musicology led by Professor Tim Crawford at Goldsmiths College awarded £1,965,976

Theme Leadership Fellow for Digital Transformation Professor Andrew Prescott said: “The recently announced large grants under the Digital Transformations theme each reflect in their different ways how engagement with digital technologies is changing research in the arts and humanities and offering researchers many new possibilities. The most striking thing about all these projects is that while they will develop and deploy innovative technologies, they will use these methods to explore the human condition: the way we developed, our creative impulses, and the social structures we have created.”
