The development of interdisciplinary curriculum integrating business and labor history into professional art and design study.

Through a partnership among History faculty, and Art and Design faculty, "Teaching Business and Labor History to Art and Design Students" will develop curricula intended to educate students about the business and labor history of the art and design professions. Content will explore how this history impacts present-day industry, careers and professional decision-making. Key project elements will include Art-and-Design faculty professional development conducted by History professors; collaborative curricular development; two conferences; and the creation of a resource website. The initiative addresses an expressed need from Art-and-Design faculty and students for a more complete understanding of the historical influences that have shaped art- and design-business management, the creative process, technology and production. The initiative will help ensure that Art and Design students are well-equipped for the professional demands of the 21st Century.

Endowment for publication subventions and an award program in musicology as well as fund-raising costs.

The American Musicological Society seeks an NEH challenge grant of $240,000, which with a 4:1 match will yield $1,200,000. These funds will endow four publication-related initiatives of the Society. The bulk of the funds ($900,000) will create a new subvention supporting the publication of first books by young scholars, whose work often represents the cutting edge of scholarly research, but whose careers are often at their most fragile or challenging point. The remainder will go primarily to existing publication subvention programs, supporting musicological books more generally ($125,000) as well as a monograph series sponsored by the Society ($100,000). These subventions aim to optimize the quality of the best scholarly books on music while keeping their prices affordable. Finally, we propose a new award for books on music in American culture ($50,000), a vital area of musical research that appeals to the broadest literary and musical public.

Implementation of a city-wide series of eleven public programs and development of digital resources exploring the history and aftermath of the Chicago race riots of July 1919 on the centenary.

The Newberry Library, in partnership with ten Chicago cultural organizations, seeks an NEH Community Conversations grant to support Chicago Reflects on the 1919 Race Riots. This city-wide series of 11 conversations and four digital resources will address the searing events of Chicago’s summer of 1919, when white fear of black migration, coupled with volatile economic conditions, sparked violence. Our proposal joins, for the first time, major cultural institutions and several smaller, award-winning, community-based non-profits. Together, we propose a varied and creative lineup of community conversations proposed aimed at racially, ethnically, and generationally diverse audiences across the city. Our events encompass a wide range of formats, including thoughtfully mediated conversations, film premieres, youth poetry slams, and a bike tour. Each provides opportunities to consider how humanistic work from past and present has responded to 1919 and reflected upon its legacies.

The continued development of computerized techniques to recover writings from the Herculaneum library, the entire collections of which were destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 BCE.

Using authentic materials from national libraries in Italy and France, this project will apply proven computerized techniques and innovate new approaches to reveal the hidden writing in the most iconic collection of damaged humanities manuscripts--the scrolls from Herculaneum. During this phase of the project, key goals are to develop and analyze a new method for recovering and enhancing ink signals from within scrolls and manuscripts, and to develop new machine-learning (AI) techniques to render those signals into visible text.

The enhancement and integration of the Bookworm analytical tool with the HathiTrust Digital Library, which holds 3.9 billion pages of digitized materials. Scholars would be able build individual collections of materials to be studied and to discover new textual use patterns across the corpus.

The HathiTrust + Bookworm (HT+BW) Project provides scholars new ways to explore trends within the massive HathiTrust corpus. Detailed exploration of metadata facets adds analytic value over such tools as Google Ngram Viewer. It enables scholars to explore personal worksets and aids discovery of new works. It will help the HathiTrust Research Center provide computational access to the HathiTrust corpus. Open-source improvements to Bookworm code will increase value to other large text projects.

A two-week summer institute and follow-up workshop for 12 participants to explore network analysis approaches to early modern studies. The institute would be hosted at the Folger Shakespeare Library with a variety of visiting experts.

The Folger Institute proposes to host a two-week institute on “Early Modern Digital Agendas: Network Analysis” in summer 2017 (EMDA2017). Under the direction of Professor Jonathan Hope and Dr. Ruth Ahnert, this institute will introduce humanities scholars, alt-ac builders, and librarians (both digital and traditional) to an expert visiting faculty—computing specialists, social historians, network analysts, literary historians, linguists, and visualization designers—to model best practices for the design and implementation of quantitative network analysis. EMDA2017 will be an opportunity for 12 scholarly practitioners to consider the ways this approach may be shaping the very nature of early modern research through intensive application and analysis.

The National Humanities Center, an independent center exclusively devoted to advanced humanities research, seeks five nine-month fellowships for the next three-year cycle (grant period Jan. 1, 2019-June 30, 2022). Since 1978, NEH has generously supported five NHC fellowships during each granting cycle, excepting the last cycle when it supported three. Designated “NEH Fellows,” recipients of these awards are chosen through a rigorous vetting process and join a vibrant intellectual community of 35-40 total Fellows. Each works on a major research project throughout the academic year with significant support from our library staff and fellowship office. End-of-year evaluations from the roughly 1,400 Fellows who have been in residence generally describe their year at the NHC as the most inspiring and productive of their careers. The NHC focuses attention to diversity in all of its dimensions so that Fellows represent a broad range of disciplines, institutions, backgrounds and perspectives.
