ODU Research Projects Receive Humanities Grant Awards

Two Old Dominion University Research Foundation projects were recently selected to receive National Endowment for the Humanities grants that total more than $500,000.

The first award, in the Digital Humanities Implementation Grants category, totals $324,634. It was provided for a project entitled: "Archive What I See Now: Bringing Institutional Web Archiving Tools to the Individual Researcher." The project director is Michele Weigle, an associate professor of computer science in the College of Sciences. The project involves further development of a toolset that would allow individual humanities researchers and institutions to easily archive websites and to navigate collections.

The second award, in the Landmarks of American History category, totals $176,322. It was granted for a project entitled: "The Long Road from Brown: School Desegregation in Virginia." The project director is Yonghee Suh, an assistant professor of social studies/history education in the Darden College of Education. The project includes two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on Virginia's Massive Resistance to the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.
