NEH Humanities Historical Research Grants DEADLINE May 18

The Research and Development program supports projects that address major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and resources. These challenges include the need to find better ways to preserve materials of critical importance to the nation’s cultural heritage—from fragile artifacts and manuscripts to analog recordings and digital assets subject to technological obsolescence—and to develop advanced modes of organizing, searching, discovering, and using such materials.

This program supports projects at all stages of development, from early planning and stand-alone studies, to advanced implementation. Research and Development projects contribute to the evolving and expanding body of knowledge for heritage practitioners, and for that reason, outcomes may take many forms. Projects may produce any combination of laboratory datasets, guidelines for standards, open access software tools, workflow and equipment specifications, widely used metadata schema, or other products.

Research and Development supports work on the entire range of humanities collection types including, but not limited to, moving image and sound recordings, archaeological artifacts, born digital and time-based media, rare books and manuscripts, archival records, material culture, and art. Applicants must demonstrate how advances in preservation and access through a Research and Development project would benefit the cultural heritage community by supporting humanities research, teaching, or public programming.

Virtual: Beech Leaf Disease FREE Webinar March 9

Beech leaf disease (BLD) affects and kills both native and ornamental beech tree species. It is associated with a nematode, Litylenchus crenatae mccannii. This disease has only been discovered in recent years and much about it, including the full cause and how it spreads, is still unknown. Because of this, experts from The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station are collecting information and performing research in the hopes of learning more about the disease and how to control it.

resourcED is a program to strengthen local food systems FOOD BOX pickup locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan & Tarrytown, New York

What would it look like if out-of-work cooks around the world dug in and built a garden?

Two months ago, three cooks from Blue Hill at Stone Barns—Pruitt Kerdchoochuen, Bronson Petti and Chuan-Chieh Chang—did just that. They started three kitchen gardens by ripping up three lawns. Stone Barns farm director, Jack Algiere, guided them by speaking their language: he created a step-by-step recipe, from sod-busting to seed selection.

They shared the recipe with cook friends, who shared it with cook friends, and suddenly it snowballed—now thousands of line cooks from across the world are following along and cultivating their own kitchen gardens: from the Philippines to Egypt, Colombia to Canada, and New Zealand to Norway.

So we’ve put a name to this. The Kitchen Farming Project will follow Pruitt, Bronson and Chuan, the out-of-work Blue Hill chefs—and everyone else around the world who digs in with us—as they confront the challenges and experience the pleasures of growing their own food.

And we’re betting that the journey—from seed to plate—will tell the story of a new food future.

What if a generation of cooks and eaters emerge from isolation never looking at an ingredient list—or a farmer—in the same way again? What if we redefined our role in the food system, not as end users, but as engaged participants from farm to table.

What if you joined them?

We are asking you—cooks, bartenders, bakers, butchers, and anyone who loves to eat—to join us. Let’s dig in and write the recipe for the future of food. Real revolutions begin in the soil.
