May 11th, 2012

Congratulations to Bethany Nowviskie (Director, Digital Research and Scholarship, UVa Library) and the Scholars’ Lab on completing a successful inaugural year with the Praxis Program, a first-of-its-kind graduate training program in digital humanities at the University of Virginia. During the last academic year, six students created “Prism,” a web-based tool that allows for group interpretation of literary texts. Funding for the Praxis Program has been secured for a second year from the Mellon Foundation.
