University of Illinois Chicago Library Announces Multiethnic Digital Humanities Project

From UIC Library:

The UIC Institute for the Humanities and University Library are delighted to announce the Multiethnic Digital Humanities Project! Generously funded by the University of Illinois Presidential Grant to Celebrate the Impact of the Arts and the Humanities, this next chapter of the Digital Humanities Initiative addresses a burgeoning area of academic work at UIC and other campuses on the intersections of digital methods and platforms with race, ethnicity and community across the globe.

Digital humanities expands opportunities for new research methods and for producing public-facing work in arts and humanities on exciting interactive digital platforms. The Multiethnic Digital Humanities Project takes inspiration from exciting work being done by our faculty and students and seeks to bolster the visibility and reach of projects documenting diverse languages, cultures and communities. Also informed by the innovative work done across the country, such as the NEH-funded Digital Native American Studies Project, the project aims to expose our University of Illinois campuses to cutting-edge digital humanities work and facilitates exciting collaborations with scholars and community partners.
