The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) has announced a new grant program, “Dangers & Opportunities of Technology: Perspectives from the Humanities.” This is “a direct call for research that explores the relationship between technology and culture and its dramatic impacts—both positive and negative.” Single researchers may be awarded up to $75,000, and projects led by collaborative teams may be awarded up to $150,000. The announcement continues,
Our goal with this program is to support projects analyzing technology, broadly defined, and its impact on society through the humanities and humanistic social sciences. We hope to attract scholars from a wide range of disciplines interested in tackling these critical contemporary issues.
Resources for applicants are now available, and questions can be directed to odh[at]neh.gov.
Applications are due 2 February 2023, and those selected will be notified in August 2023.
