UGA faculty win NEH grants in digital humanities

The National Endowment for the Humanities has funded two projects directed by UGA faculty members in its December 2018 awards cycle. Scott Nesbit, assistant professor in the College of Environment and Design and the department of history, received a grant for his project “Freedom’s Movement: Mapping African-American Space in War and Reconstruction.” Steven Soper, assistant professor in the department of history, received a grant for the project “Historic Profiles of American Incarceration,” which he will helm with co-directors Barry Godfrey of the University of Liverpool and Heather Ann Thompson of the University of Michigan.

Congratulations to Professors Nesbit and Soper for this recognition of their excellent work.
