It gives me great pleasure to inform you that the BBIP-ER (Black Book Interactive Project: Extending the Reach) Scholars Program applications are finally up on our website. Thanks to the ACLS Grant we received in 2018, we are trying to recruit scholars, teachers, library/museum professionals, and independent scholars to contribute to our project of building a workable archive of African American Novels using their own ideas and personalized projects as stepping stones. These projects will be an investigation into some aspect of African American literature utilizing the BBIP-ER database and interface. Successful applicants will be paid a stipend of $2,275 and will have access to an in-house DH consultant (including some of you) to guide them.
It would be immensely helpful if you could spread the word, and forward the link and the flier that we are attaching with this mail to your various networks. The deadline for application submissions is January 22, 2019. Further information is available once you click on the provided links.
