Associate professor of English and Native American literature scholar Siobhan Senier has been awarded a $39,655 grant by the Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program of the National Endowment for the Humanities to do collaborative planning for creating on-line access to regional Native American writings held by small tribal archives across New England. The writings will be posted on Writing of Indigenous New England, an online hub for researchers, readers, writers, and students interested in the Native American literature of this region.

The project titled, Writing of Indigenous New England: Building Partnerships for the Preservation of Regional Native American Literature, will involve three pilot projects to test workflow for digitizing these materials. In addition, protocols and agreements for future collaborative work drafted.
