Readers may be interested in the NEH Digging into Data Challenge Grant, which can be found at http://www.neh.gov/grants/odh/digging-data-challenge. It is designed for projects using large-scale digital analysis. With a funding ratio of 16%, it’s certainly worth a try. I would love to hear what sorts of digital analysis projects are underway.
On a separate note, during a recent visit to the Massachusetts Historical Society, currently celebrating its 225th year, I saw “The Private Jefferson” exhibit, which placed digital facsimiles next to original documents. Viewers could magnify the digitized text so as to better read it. Jefferson remained as enigmatic as ever, but the exhibit provided a rich conduit into the archival clues to his life. It was superb. I would love to hear about how readers use digital technology for teaching or in library exhibits.
