Session proposal: Funding digital humanities projects

Barrie Howard has been involved in grant-funded digital humanities projects on both sides of the table for a decade. He will lead a breakout session on a range of issues from grant seeking to grants administration and project management. In the spirit of the THATcamp unconference format, he would like input from session participants on the format of the session as to whether it manifests as a Make, Talk, or Teach event. Barrie has created a dataset on grants funding of digital preservation projects from ca. 2000 to the present, and is interested in ways to expand and share the data.
