Elliott Participates in NEH Meeting

By Tom Elliott

On Friday, 25 September, ISAW's Associate Director for Digital Programs Tom Elliott will participate in a public meeting of digital humanities project directors in Washington, D.C.  Hosted by the National Endowment for the Humanities' Office of Digital Humanities, the event brings together the leadership of many projects that have received funding in the latest round of NEH/ODH grant awards. The event will feature short presentations of each project, as well as remarks by Brett Bobley, Director of the ODH and a keynote speech by Bethany Nowviskie, Director of the Digital Library Federation. The event, which starts at 12:30, is free and open to the public, but because of space limitations, advanced registration (by September 23rd) is required via a link on the NEH events page.

Elliott will represent the Pleiades gazetteer of ancient places during the event. Among the other projects slated to be presented, the following may be of particular interest to ISAW affiliates:


During a morning session involving just the project directors and NEH staff, Elliott will also participate as an invited speaker on a panel addressing the topic, "Getting the Word Out: Tips, Ideas, and Approaches for Project Outreach."
