NEH Awards $28.6 Million to 233 Humanities Projects Nationwide

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) announced today that it will award $28.6 million to 233 humanities projects across the country including cultural infrastructure initiatives, scholarly research, exhibitions, documentaries, and the preservation of historic collections.

“These new NEH-supported projects will help shore up the nation’s most valuable assets: its history, literature, historic sites, regional traditions, and cultural institutions,” said NEH chairman Jon Parrish Peede. “NEH is proud to support the advancement of learning and sharing of knowledge nationwide.”

The funds will support the expansion of the Nevada Museum of Art’s research and educational facilities; a book on Latin American and Spanish women writers, artists, and patrons who challenged heterosexual norms of family, sexuality, and economic dependency in the first half of the twentieth century; long-term research fellowships at the Getty Research Institute; an exhibition that examines Japanese immigration through the photographs of Wakaji Matsumoto; and a documentary on the life and work of Dante Alighieri, among other projects.
