Framingham State University received a second grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) totaling $146,785 which will be used to expand programs on investigating race through the University’s Digital Humanities program.

The funds from the latest grant will provide a series of workshops and institutes focused on using digital humanities tools to explore issues of race in America, both historically and in the current moment, according to the press release.

The expanded programs will look at topics such as tracing the transatlantic slave trade, uncovering Native American presence in colonial New England, and showcasing contemporary African American and Latinx literature.

Last October, NEH awarded Framingham State a $192,000 grant to launch a digital humanities center in Whittemore Library.

The new initiatives funded by the NEH grant will take place during the 2022–2023 academic year in which 15 FSU faculty, librarians, and other educators will participate in a series of workshops facilitated by the institute.

“This grant will empower students, faculty, and the wider university community to investigate race through a variety of digital methods, including network analysis, historical mapping, and the mining of historical documents,” said Dr. Bartholomew Brinkman, project director.
