The Dangers and Opportunities of Technology: Perspectives from the Humanities (DOT) program supports humanistic research that examines the relationship between technology and society. NEH is particularly interested in projects that examine current social and cultural issues that are significantly shaped by technology. The DOT program is part of the NEH’s new initiative, American Tapestry.

Technology has had an enormous impact on modern society, affecting how we work, communicate, learn, engage in the political process, and live. The relationship between technology and culture continues to have dramatic impacts, both positive and negative, on our health, the environment, our social interactions, our government, cultural and educational institutions, the arts, and nearly all other aspects of life.

The program supports projects led by individual researchers (up to $75K) and by collaborative teams (up to $150K).
