I wanted to let readers know that I will be at the Modern Language Association’s annual convention this year, as will my colleague Steve Ross, Director of the Office of Challenge Grants. If you are in San Francisco, please feel free to find us to discuss project ideas, funding opportunities, or even your favorite book. If you have trouble tracking us down among the thousands of attendees, you can be certain to see us at the NEH workshop on
Friday Sunday, 28 December, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Yosemite B, Hilton San Francisco (note: the workshop is listed only in the Convention News & Program Update  [PDF, page 6], and not in the official program). There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, and we will provide an overview of the various grant programs NEH has to offer.
