Institutes for Historical Editing.
National Archives and Records Administration
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks proposals to advance inclusive participation, training, education, dialog, and collaborative exchange amongst a diverse and growing community of academic and non-academic practitioners in the editing and publishing of historical records, including the related practices of digital scholarly editing, digital ethnic studies, digital history, and digital humanities. Applicants in this funding category must adhere to the following goals and objectives: ? Core Values: Project plans (including staffing model and planned activities) must demonstrate a commitment to fostering an inclusive, respectful, and welcoming environment, and upholding core values of collaboration, experimentation, co-creation, innovation, creativity, and diversity in all forms—practitioner, profession, practice, perspective, and method. ? Technical and Institutional Infrastructure: Must be committed to creating and sustaining an open and accessible online platform that can serve multiple purposes, including but not limited to hosting pertinent educational content, courses, discussions, and other resources and information. ? Staffing Model and Programming: Plans must include an appropriate staffing model suited to organizing and hosting a suite of regular programming that advances diverse practitioner community conversations, and provides networking opportunities, workshops, and other professional development activities. ? Promotion and Outreach: Promotional plans and outreach activities must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to engaging, listening to, and supporting a diverse and inclusive community of academic and non-academic practitioners. ? Collaboration: Plans must include a diverse and collaborative team of core faculty and staff (including but not limited to scholar-editors, digital archivists, digital scholars, and/or data curators, as well as communications and technical support staff, as appropriate) who are knowledgeable in the practices and workflows associated with collecting, describing, preserving, compiling, transcribing, contextualizing, annotating, editing, encoding, and publishing historical records and other documentary source materials. We strongly encourage collaborative teams that include racially and ethnically diverse faculty and staff in key positions, and that include editorial, archival, and technical staff at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges, and/or other Indigenous and Native American tribal scholars and community members, and members of the Asian American community. Applicants are likewise encouraged to seek the input of community members as well as undergraduate and graduate students who may contribute to (and benefit from) participation in all phases of the project.
