Congratulations to Prof. William Turkel and Prof. Rob MacDougall!

Digital History at Western has been supported by two new SSHRC Insight Grants! Prof. Rob MacDougall, along with co-investigator Prof. William Turkel, received one four-year SSHRC Insight Grant, for the project, "The Golden Age of Cranks: Communication Networks and Heterodox Ideas in 19th-century North America." Furthermore, Turkel also received funding for "A Longitudinal Analysis of the Canadian World Wide Web as a Historical Resource, 1996-2014" with Ian Milligan (principal investigator, Waterloo) and Nick Ruest (York). This project will help to train students in using computational techniques that scale to 21st century data sets.
