We are proud to announce that the BGC has just received a $50,000 NEH Digital Start-Up grant. The aim of the project is to create a digital edition of Franz Boas and George Hunt’s The Social Organization and the Secret Societies of the Kwakiutl Indians that integrates the wide variety of media gathered during research in a way that was not possible in 1890.
The Digital Media Lab will be playing a role in the project, helping assistant professor Aaron Glass and a diverse group of scholars bring the project to fruition. We will be posting more about the project and its development as it proceeds. For more information visit: http://www.bgc.bard.edu/about/bgc-press-room/bgc-receives-neh.html
