Disclaimer: The purpose of this post is to motivate readers to develop a digital humanities project AND to apply for grants.
This past fall, Sandy Petrulionis, Distinguished Professor of English and American Studies, Penn State Altoona, and her colleague, Dr. Noelle A. Baker, an Independent Scholar, won a second NEH Scholarly Editions Grant to work on a scholarly, annotated, digital edition of the complete “Almanacks” of Mary Moody Emerson. (Read the complete story here.) The $290,000 grant is a portion of $33 million dollars in grant money available from the NEH alone.
If you have a project idea and would like to get started, contact me (dit5003 at psu dot edu) or attend one of our Digital Humanities Interest Group Meet-Ups (click here for the schedule).
