The 2021 Junior Fellows were busy for every minute of the ten weeks of their intensive summer internships, and below, you’ll find the blog posts that they wrote during their brief time in the program.
On top of their project work and the many blogs they published, the Fellows produced videos and infographics to showcase their research at the annual Display Day event. This year’s Display Day event was once again virtual, but a new, live component of the event–a ‘lightning round’ and Q&A session–allowed the Fellows to interact with an engaged audience via Zoom.

The Library will be hosting webinars to share information about the three open grant programs in the Connecting Communities Digital Initiative
The Connecting Communities Digital Initiative (CCDI) Artist or Scholar in Residence program will fund an Artist in Residence or a Scholar in Residence in 2021, 2022, and 2023. Each Artist/Scholar in Residence will serve for 2 years, supported for $50,000 in their first year and $100,000 in their second year. Individuals selected will be either artists or scholars whose artistic or scholarly work connects with the intersections of technology and cultural heritage, and engages with the legacies of racial division in the United States. Proposed projects will help the Library and the American people imagine new ways of preserving, accessing, and sharing the stories of underserved communities, connecting the nation’s past to its future.
