Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has released informaton about the joint he National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and Department of Energy (DOE) awards. Software Studies initiative is one of three groups which received the award.
"High performance computing and the humanities are finally connecting — with a little matchmaking help from the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Both organizations have teamed up to create the Humanities High Performance Computing Program, a one-of-a-kind initiative that gives humanities researchers access to some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
As part of this special collaboration, the DOE’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will dedicate a total of one million compute hours on its supercomputers and technical training to humanities experts. Meanwhile, the program’s participants were selected through a highly competitive peer review process led by the NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities."
