    Kyle Ferguson, "eTLP: Digitizing Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus," 2012-2013.

    2012-2013 Grantee, Kyle Ferguson, Philosophy, “eTLP: Digitizing Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus,”

    The Provost’s Digital Innovation Grants support digital projects designed, created, programmed, or administered by doctoral students at the CUNY Graduate Center.

    Since 2012, the grants have supported a range of inventive projects across the disciplines: an online, open-access, crowdsourced database of scholarly relationships within writing studies; an app to support street medics and promote health and safety among activist communities; and a first effort at “Diplonomics,” a computational analysis that applies Big Data techniques to the study of diplomatic history. This is just a sampling of the diverse research interests reflected among the grant recipients.

    Every spring, applications are accepted from matriculated doctoral students in good academic standing at the CUNY Graduate Center. (Click here for the most recent Call for Proposals.) Grants are awarded to projects that contribute to the mission of the CUNY Graduate Center, as well as to the larger scholarly community and to the public. In addition to encouraging ambitious thinking in new areas, the program seeks to create connections between student scholars working in the digital realm. In order to forge these ties, grantees present publicly on their work in progress during the academic year, take part in collaborative discussions with current and past grantees, and, at the end of the grant period, report on their work through this website.
