Dr. Takeia Anthony was selected for a three-week hybrid institute designed to expand the voices, perspectives, and visions represented in the practice and production of digital scholarship, according to a press release by Brown University Library. 

Supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the summer institute allows scholars who lack the necessary infrastructure at their home institutions to pursue new scholarly forms that offer unique capabilities beyond conventional publishing formats, from multimedia enhancements to global reach. 

“I believe there are a plethora of innovative ways for scholars to share their research and for students to engage the research via digital platforms and publishing,” she shared.  

Dr. Anthony will join 15 other humanities scholars in the 2022 cohort.  

“This opportunity allows me to broaden my digital humanities scope. My scholarship not only adds to the burgeoning fields of digital humanities, Black women's intellectualism, and Black women’s philanthropy, it also contributes to the foundation of Black digital humanities and publishing,” she said, adding,  “I am grateful to continue this imperative work as a faculty member at Kentucky State University; I look forward to incorporating what I learn at Brown University in my classes and representing Kentucky State in the digital publishing and digital humanities communities across the world.”
