Hannah Alpert-Abrams, Program Specialist for the Office of Digital Humanities - National Endowment for the Humanities, will be leading an information session about the process of applying for NEH-ODH grants, particularly the Digital Humanities Advancement Grants. Recent Harvard NEH-ODH grant recipients include Jinah Kim (Mapping Color in History), Kelly O'Neill (Imperiia: An Information Ecosystem for Russian History), and Peter Bol (Automating Data Extraction from Chinese Texts and Extending WorldMap to Make It Easier for Humanists and Others to Find, Use, and Publish Geospatial Information).

The Digital Humanities Advancement Grants program (DHAG) supports innovative, experimental, and/or computationally challenging digital projects at different stages of their lifecycles, from early start-up phases through implementation and sustainability.  Experimentation, reuse, and extensibility are valued in this program, leading to work that can scale to enhance scholarly research, teaching, and public programming in the humanities. The program also supports scholarship that examines the history, criticism, and philosophy of digital culture or technology and its impact on society.
