Australian Research Council Grant for a Study of the 1935 Harlem Riot

The Australian Research Council today awarded us a five year grant totaling $702,000 for our new project, Year of the Riot: Harlem 1935.  This amazing news means that we will be to able to expand “Digital Harlem” into the 1930s, taking advantage of the incredibly rich evidence collected by the committee that Mayor La Guardia set up to investigate the causes of the riot.  The new funding will also allow us to re-employ the Archaeological Computing Laboratory here at the University of Sydney to add new functionalities to the site – watch for the mapping of sequences of events (like parades and the riot itself) and the inclusion of images — and much more!
