Boynton Wins Grant for Digital Humanities and Musical Iconography

Susan Boynton

Susan Boynton has won a three-year grant from the Partner University Fund (FACE Foundation) for her project FAB-Musiconis (French-American Bridge for Medieval Musical Iconography). The three-year project in collaboration with Paris-Sorbonne University centers on training graduate students in digital humanities approaches to the analysis and description of medieval images related to music, with a focus on the Musiconis database. Beginning in 2016, five graduate student medievalists from each of the two partner universities will be selected each fall to participate in a program of activities including two-week intensive exchanges in Paris and New York.

Co-sponsors and institutional partners include Columbia’s  Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), the Columbia University Libraries (CUL), the Department of Music, the Dean of the Humanities, the Institut de Recherche en Musicologie (IReMus), the Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA), and the Columbia Global Centers | Paris (CGC).
