The focus of this session will be on tips and techniques that historians can use to become involved in NEH projects beyond applying for a grant or serving as a project director. We will explore lesser-known opportunities to become involved with the NEH and the projects that we fund. Examples of these opportunities include serving as a peer review panelist, advising documentary films, producing websites and other digital media, evaluating archival collections, participating in educational seminars and institutes, conducting research with support of a fellowship from an independent research institution, or becoming involved in the work of state humanities councils.
The seven program officers from across the agency will each address two related questions:
1) What opportunities are available to historians?
2) What kinds of strategies can historians employ to take advantage of these opportunities?
David Weinstein will start the session with a brief overview of the Endowment’s divisions and offices.
Representatives from each of the agency’s seven division or office will the deliver five-minute presentations.
Program officers will take questions from attendees.
NEH staff will be available for short introductory meetings with attendees after the session.
The entire session would last approximately ninety minutes, though the format gives us flexibility in terms of length.
David Weinstein will chair the panel.
