Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and The University of Arizona each receive prestigious grant award from the National Endowment for the Humanities
Congratulations to the three Arizona universities on their recent grant awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities in July 2014. These impressive, nationally competitive grant awards require an intense application process and support a wide variety of projects.
Arizona State University: Nature, History, and Culture at the Nation’s Edge
Planning a multiformat interpretation of the cultures, history, and physical landscapes of the Arizona-Sonora borderlands region through a website, a traveling exhibition, and public programs.
Northern Arizona University: Exploring Sustainable Practices for Cold Storage for At-Risk Collections
A planning project to develop recommendations for a dedicated cold storage environment for the university’s visual resource collections (photographs, negatives, motion pictures, and magnetic media) documenting the history and culture of the Colorado Plateau region.
The University of Arizona: Planning a Sustainable Preservation Environment for Arizona State Museum’s Anthropological Photographs
Planning and environmental assessment to create efficient, sustainable plans to repurpose space at the Arizona State Museum (ASM) at the University of Arizona into a consolidated storage space for the museum’s collection of photographs documenting the history of Native Americans in the region. The project would identify appropriate and sustainable environmental parameters for the preservation of these photographs in the extreme desert climate of the American Southwest.
