Lightning Round, Part 3: Video Presentations on the 2016 Institutes for Advanced Topics

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. A highlight of this meeting is 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 presentation videos for each of our 2016 Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities. These institutes will take place in summer 2017. Information about attending an ODH-funded institute can be found on our website.

The Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program supports national or regional (multistate) training programs for scholars, humanities professionals, and advanced graduate students to broaden and extend their knowledge of digital humanities.
