On February 9, 2018, the NEH Office of Digital Humanities convened our annual Project Directors Meeting at NEH headquarters in Washington, DC.

One highlight of this meeting was the popular “Lightning Round” – an opportunity for ODH Project Directors to share a 3-minute overview of their NEH-funded project. Below, you’ll find links to videos of each of these presentations. Click on any project title to go directly to the video.
