NEH designates Emerson almanacks as 'We the People' project

Recipient of a recent Scholarly Editions grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, "The Almanacks of Mary Moody Emerson: A Scholarly Digital Edition," edited by Penn State Professor of English and American Studies Sandra Petrulionis and independent scholar Noelle Baker, has just been designated an NEH “We the People” project and is being supported in part by funds the agency has set aside for this special initiative.

The goal of the “We the People” initiative is "to encourage and strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture through the support of projects that explore significant events and themes in our nation's history and culture and that advance knowledge of the principles that define America." In awarding this status, the NEH "anticipates that the Emerson edition will contribute significantly to this effort."
