My role in the session will be to provide the perspective of a funding agency staff member. As a member of the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities, I will be available to discuss various strategies for supporting the work of historians using digital approaches for scholarship, teaching, and reaching interested public audiences. I will highlight recent awards and outline current grant programs that will be of particular interest to historians curious about emerging digital methods and tools. In addition to emphasizing grant programs that support teaching, research, and public programs in the digital humanities, I will be able to update roundtable participants with information on new developments and initiatives of the NEH. I would also appreciate hearing from the audience about what funders can do to assist historians as they seek to explore new questions for their scholarship and to better connect with their students and the public.
NEH grant programs of particular interest to this panel:
Division of Research Programs
Division of Public Programs
Office of Digital Humanities
If time permits, we also will have an opportunity to explore the NEH Funded Projects Query form to learn how to discover previously-funded NEH digital projects that may be of interest.
