UH Launches First U.S. Digital Humanities Research Center for Latina/o Studies with Funding from Mellon Foundation
The University of Houston will soon be home to the country’s first Digital Humanities Research Center specializing in U.S. Latina/o Studies.
Lorena Gautherau, the inaugural postdoctoral fellow, will work on several digital humanities projects involving work by Latinas and Latinos from the American colonial period through 1960.
The two-year fellowship is funded through a $167,700 grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The center has been established by Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project (Recovery) and UH-based Arte Público Press, the nation’s largest publisher of contemporary and recovered literature by Hispanic authors from the U.S. . .
