Presented by officers from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), this workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about grant opportunities from the NEH that support digital humanities projects, from planning for sustainable digitization efforts; to undertaking innovative humanities efforts that explore new uses of digital technologies; to using existing digital platforms and applications for engaging new, particularly public, audiences with humanities questions and themes. The first half of the workshop will be an introduction to the resources and grant programs of the Endowment, led by NEH program officers. Ample time will be allotted during this half for questions from and discussion with the audience.
The second half of the workshop will be two mock panels that will give workshop participants a sense of the peer review process employed by the Endowment. Before the conference, the organizers will ask for 10 of the workshop registrants to volunteer as mock grant reviewers. The volunteers will be provided with materials from a sample application to review before the workshop so that they can serve on the mock panel. After the mock panels, the presenters will respond to questions from all workshop participants about the NEH review process.
Maximum Participants: 40
Fee: $30 (Fee reflects the Association's overhead, and not a fee charged by the NEH.)
