    Dear colleagues please share and consider applying for the 2023 US Latino
    Digital Humanities Center – Mellon Foundation Grants-in-Aid. Proposals are
    due Jan. 9, 2023. More info on our webpage at:

    * The University of Houston US Latino Digital Humanities (USLDH) program is
    a digital scholarship/research undertaking to provide training and research
    on US Latino recovered materials. Proposals must draw from recovered
    primary and derivative sources produced by Latinas/os in what is now the
    United States, dating from the Colonial Period to 1980 (such as Recovering
    the US Hispanic Literary Heritage collections, other repositories and/or
    the community). The Grants-in-Aid program is designed to provide a
    stipend to scholars for research and development of digital scholarship in
    the form of a digital publication and/or a digital project. The grant
    covers any expense connected with research that will advance a project to
    the next stage or to a successful conclusion. Scholars will have the
    opportunity to publish their digital scholarship on Arte Público Press’
    APPDigital publication platform. See sample digital scholarship/research on
    the following sites: Reanimate, CUNY, University of Washington and Temple
    University Press. Past USLDH projects are described below. Scholars at
    different stages of their careers (academics, librarians, advanced graduate
    students, independent scholars, etc.) are encouraged to apply for a stipend
    of up to $7,500 for investigative work. Grantees are expected to attend
    virtual trainings (dates to be announced). We welcome applications in the
    following areas: – Identification, location and recovery of any wide
    variety of historical documents and/or literary genres, including
    conventional literary prose and poetry, and such forms as letters, diaries,
    memoirs, testimonials, periodicals, historical records and written
    expressions of oral traditions, folklore and popular culture. Any documents
    that could prove relevant to the goals of the program will also be
    considered. The emphasis is on works by Mexican/Chicano, Puerto Rican,
    Cuban, Spanish, Central and South American and other Latina/o residents of
    what has become the United States, from the Colonial period to 1980. –
    Bibliographic compilations, indexing projects pertaining to any of the
    above. Compilation of reference works, e.g. bibliographic dictionaries,
    thematic datasets, linguistic corpus, etc. – Study of recovered primary
    source(s) for potential digital publication, including: text analysis,
    thematic dataset creation, visualization, metadata creation, etc. – US
    Latina voices. – Underrepresented archives, such as Afrolatinidad,
    Indigenous, gender, LGBTQI+, etc. To apply, please submit a letter of
    interest, project description (2-3 pages), proposed budget and CV as a
    single PDF document via email to
    <> by Monday, January 9, 2023. Two letters of
    recommendation should be sent directly to
    <> by the recommenders. All documentation (including
    letters) are due on January 9, 2023. *
