Lightning Round Part 2: Videos from 2016 Implementation Grant Presentations

March 24, 2017

On September 16, 2016, 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 attendees to share a 3-minute overview of their NEH-funded project.

Below, you’ll find links to videos of each of the 2016 Digital Humanities Implementation Grant presentations.

Note that, as of 2017, grants for implementation phase projects in the digital humanities are now part of the Digital Humanities Advancement Grant (DHAG) program. Find out more about the DHAG program online or email with questions.
