Summer is in full swing for the Crow team. Crow was recently awarded a seed grant from Purdue’s College of Liberal Arts. This grant provides funding for summer work that will help the team prepare to write an application to the third Humanities Without Walls Grand Research Challenge this fall.

As part of the work this summer, we will begin the process of updating the Crow website. We’re looking to enhance our site’s usability, design, content, and features so that everyone who accesses it can get the most out of the resources it offers.

Since HWW this year stresses reciprocity and redistribution, we will also review our past Crow workshops (and attendee responses to them) to give us more insight about how our work gives back to the academic communities we interact with.

Finally, we will be expanding Crow outreach, working to partner with a number of diverse institutions.

It’s going to be an exciting few months, so stay tuned.
