Thanks to a recent grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for Digital Humanities will play a critical role in diversifying the digital humanities’ linguistic landscape worldwide. 

In late July, the NEH Office of Digital Humanities announced that the New Languages for NLP: Building Linguistic Diversity in the Digital Humanities project would receive support from its Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities program.

The project, led by CDH Associate Director Natalia Ermolaev and Andrew Janco (Digital Scholarship Librarian, Haverford College) is a collaboration with two partners: the Library of Congress LC Labs; and the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH-EU), a European Research Infrastructure Consortium. Staff from Princeton University Library’s Research Data Service will also be involved.
