Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies
The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress announces a new Kluge Fellowship in Digital Studies to examine the impact of the digital revolution on society, culture and international relations using the Library’s collections and resources.
History teaches that groundbreaking technological innovations can be agents of broad and profound change. Their transformative effect on society can be greater than is anticipated or originally understood. Innovations such as the printing press and aerial flight continue to affect every level of human experience. The digital revolution is another such transformation.
The Library’s John W. Kluge Center seeks proposals from scholars worldwide that will generate deep, empirically-grounded understanding of the consequences of the digital revolution on how people think, how society functions, and on international relations. Proposals may also explore and analyze emerging trends and new phenomena that may generate consequential changes in the future. All proposals must state the importance of the research to fundamental thinking about the human condition.
