Ellen Cushman, Dean’s Professor of Civic Sustainability and Professor of English, and Julia Flanders, Professor of the Practice in English and the Director of the Digital Scholarship Group, have won a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Office of Digital Humanities (ODH) Award through the Digital Humanities Advancement Grants program for their co-directed project, Translating Cherokee Manuscripts. The awarded funds will be used for “the further development of user interfaces for collective translation of the collections in the Digital Archive for American Indian Languages Preservation and Perseverance (DAILP), a digital archive of Cherokee-language manuscripts and lexical resources.” The awarded grant for this project is funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Congratulations to Professors Cushman and Flanders on this exciting project!
