At long last, we are very pleased to present the videos from the 2014 Office of Digital Humanities Project Directors Meeting, which was held September 15, 2014 in the NEH's new digs at the Constitution Center in Washington, DC.  This meeting convened the top researchers in the digital humanities from across the United States, who shared their projects in short, three-minute lightning round presentations.  Enjoy these videos from project directors of NEH's Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants.
