Stanford Scholars Awarded Grants for Digital Humanities Research

Feb 17 2015

The Roberta Bowman Denning Fund for Humanities and Technology recently awarded grants to humanities projects that will use digital technology to produce new scholarship. 

A grant was awarded to THOMAS MULLANEY, associate professor of history, for his proposal “China’s Other Population Crisis: Funeral Reform and Grave Relocation in Modern China.” Mullaney’s team will employ geospatial mapping to track the relocation of graves in modern China, where expanding economic development has led to the exhumation and reburial of 10 million corpses in the past decade alone.
