Announcing our NEH Grant: Pop Up Archive keeps on growing with PRX  

Pop Up Archive is thrilled and honored to be among the recipients of $34 million in grant funding announced by the National Endowment for the Humanities last week. Together with our incredible partners at the Public Radio Exchange, Pop Up Archive received one of seven Digital Humanities Implementation Grants. The grant is a follow-on to a Digital Humanities Start Up Grant received in 2013 in collaboration with The Kitchen Sisters.

Also, big congratulations to our friends at WFMT Chicago and the Complete Studs Terkel Digital Archive, who were also awarded an NEH grant last week to support the development of their archive of broadcasts from Chicago radio legend Studs Terkel. Get ready for a delightful onslaught of archival audio gems: Terkel’s complete archive adds up to over 5,000 recordings!

We can’t wait to make these recordings — and many other historic voices — discoverable, and we’re grateful to have the generous support of the NEH and an awesome partnership with PRX. In short, we’re thrilled to keep building Pop Up Archive for you!

Thanks for sticking with us. Watch out for the exciting things we’ve got in the works.
