Faculty development workshops leading to the establishment of a Museum and Heritage Studies Minor at Albany State University.  

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Albany State University seeks funding for the development of a multi-disciplinary minor in Museum Studies. The minor serves the common good by promoting diversification of museum fields and providing training for staff and trustees of regional organizations through open workshops with guest lecturers. Additionally, the program has the potential to supplement the regional workforce with student interns during field studies experiences. ASU is the largest HBCU in the state and geographically located to extend these opportunities to a more diverse and underserved population. The need for this initiative is two-fold: to prepare African-American students for fields involving museology, preservation and archiving, and to create career paths for humanities majors while extending opportunities in the humanities to students working in other areas of study. Finally, the Museum Studies minor is part of a larger, ongoing objective to promote the holdings of the university and the cultural institutions in the area.

The Africana Theatre and Dance Collection will make an extensive number of rich primary sources which are currently uncatalogued and housed in Founders, available for Howard University students, faculty, and staff, area colleges and universities, and the community at large.

A two-year faculty and curricular development project at Tuskegee University to integrate humanities study and architectural training and create an interdisciplinary minor in African-American studies.

The“Lifting the Veil” initiative seeks to integrate humanities approaches into the professional training of architects; it also seeks to expand humanities offerings by developing a new minor in African-American studies. The initiative will begin by exploring, both historically and philosophically, African-American education. Booker T. Washington advocated educating the whole individual—the hand, heart, and mind; he also advocated “co-relation,” applying academic study to practical work. Similar questions in our own time probe how to best connect humanities study to the professions. As one of only seven HBCUs currently offering accredited degrees in architecture, Tuskegee University provides an ideal setting to uncover past and current educational theories and philosophies. Tuskegee's Robert R. Taylor School of Architecture and Construction Science (TSACS) will lead this initiative by developing an African-American Studies minor and enriching its architecture history.

A two-year project to produce new curricular materials, digital humanities resources, and community engagement activities focused on the writers Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, and Albert Murray.

The proposed project seeks to advance humanities education and scholarship at Tuskegee University as our students become acquainted with literary and cultural icons Zora Neale Hurston, Ralph Ellison, and Albert Murray, each of whom was connected biographically and artistically to Tuskegee Institute and Macon County, Alabama. In studying the works of these pre-eminent authors of the twentieth century, engaging with scholars knowledgeable about these authors, our students, mainly in the sciences and social sciences, will be able to understand and contextualize twenty-first century challenges in culture and society. The project, through course enhancements, workshops for teachers and faculty, and community engagement activities, also seeks to create a digital humanities site to disseminate and historical documents, teaching materials, and cultural artifacts and to preserve them for future generations.

Curricular improvements to an oral history course focused on African American women from the rural and small-town South, as well as archival preservation of interviews with these community elders.

In August of 2002, students at Spelman College were introduced to The SIS Oral History Project, a new course that would: (1) open the lens of age in studies of history and literature; (2) identify oral history as a major methodology for research in the humanities; and (3), through student-conducted interviews, give voice and visibility to African American women elders of the South. That “new course” is, today, a demanding project that transforms teaching and learning in the humanities. The project meets criteria for NEH funding for Humanities Initiatives at HBCUs in the following ways: (1) it strengthens students’ skills in writing, critical thinking, oral articulation, and research across disciplines; (2) through a partnership with AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library Archives Research Center, it insures that project research will be preserved and disseminated for use in humanities courses across the nation; and (3) it produces age-conscious scholars for the twenty-first century.

A project to digitize the archives of an important early African American literary and cultural society and to carry forward its legacy through interdisciplinary public lectures and forums.

Collaborating with the Howard University Moorland-Spingarn Research Center (MSRC) and Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church (MAME), the Department of English at Howard University requests funds to support “Bethel 21,” a project that revives and reimagines the Bethel Literary and Historical Association in the 21st century. Like the original society, this project will consist of lectures from scholars and public figures and literary and cultural arts presentations from authors and performers. This iteration of the Bethel, however, as a collaborative project in the humanities between a historical society and a university, will also include critical engagement with the archives of the Bethel Literary and Historical Association’s collection at MRSC and will organize public forums for the community to promote civil, civic discourse as a life skill.

A two-year initiative to create teaching and archival resources about dance and campus architectural history and to integrate them into the university curriculum.

The “Black History Matters” Architecture and Dance initiative seeks to promote the humanities at Hampton University by creating a digital teaching resource for three programs – the Pre-College/Summer Bridge program, University 101 and ARC314. Inspired by the research conducted by Dr. Mary Ann Laverty in her book, “Charles H. Williams and the Hampton Institute Creative Dance Group and Their Use of African Diasporic Dance 1934-1948,” this resource will provide archival information on dance and campus architectural history at Hampton University during Charles H. Williams’ tenure and its significance to broader issues of race and inclusion at that time.

A one-year curriculum development project integrating local oral histories into six humanities courses.

This project utilizes oral histories of New Orleans African Americans who achieved the “American Dream” of homeownership in the second oldest American all-black “suburb in the city” in the 1950s and early 1960s and the first in New Orleans to tell a larger story. Denied by “redlining” from buying homes in the rest of the city, they formed their own community. The project strengthens the teaching and study of the humanities at SUNO by developing new resources in the form of these oral histories, creating a digital Teaching Module for sharing them in humanities courses, teaching them in humanities courses, and preserving them digitally.

A two-year project organizing digital humanities workshops for faculty to incorporate digitized materials about campus history.

Faculty and staff from Humanities disciplines within the College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities at North Carolina Central University will form a cohort to participate in a two-year project (2022-2024) that uses the NCCU materials at Digital NC (especially the newspapers and yearbooks) and the materials in the NCCU Archives to develop teaching materials to be implemented in their courses. In the first year, we will coordinate with the Digital Humanities Research Institute at CUNY for workshop materials and instructors who would be willing to run a week of workshops. After the workshop, faculty members will be expected to create and implement course modules using this digital archival material. In the second year, faculty members will participate in a symposium discussing their results and will engage with other faculty members in their disciplines as well as the greater university community and the citizens of Durham, NC.
