Black Book Interactive project (BBIP) Scholars Program IV: Digital Publishing

BBIP is an initiative from the History of Black Writing at the University of Kansas. A Digital Humanities Advancement Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities will support this next phase of the Black Book Interactive Project, Building Literacy and Curating Critical Cultural Knowledge in Digital Humanities [BLACK DH].

BBSIP-SV IV: Digital Publishing is designed for higher education professionals and graduate students who have been actively teaching and working with black literature and who have a DH project that is nearing the publication stage. The program will provide digital publishing training as well as access to the History of Black Writing corpus. By the end of their tenure with the program, participants will publish a digital, open-source, peer-reviewed project.
