Anti-Racist Digital Research Initiative grants awarded
February 8, 2022
We recently announced our Anti-Racist Digital Research Initiative grant awardees, whose projects aim to advance anti-racism and social justice in the humanities, arts, and humanistic social sciences.
This pilot program is awarding mini grants of up to $5000 for early-stage digital scholarship projects. Our review committee selected 6 projects from a pool of more than 30 applications. The selected projects represent a range of communities, methodologies, and research products, including digital maps tracking violence toward a marginalized community and an effort to document and preserve the history of a Michigan neighborhood lost to a freeway interchange in the 1970s.
In the coming months, representatives from the library and LSA Technology Services will work with the project teams to develop charters and work plans, prototypes, and plans for the future of their projects.
This program is in partnership with the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts — Technology Services, and the National Center for Institutional Diversity — The Anti-Racism Collaborative.
