Department Receives SSHRC Grant


As a partner in a new multi-university SSHRC project “Environments of Change: Digitizing Nature, History and Human Experience in Late Medieval Sussex,” Rob Harrap will work with historians, geographers, archeologists, computer scientists and a wide range of community groups and companies in Canada and the UK. The project examines the region around Herstmonceaux Castle – the Bader International Centre - as an analog for community resiliance in long-term climate change scenarios, and examines how to use modern technology to both inform and communicate complex historical narratives. The 2.5M$ project is the first Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grant in the Department.
