The National Endowment for the Humanities announced over two hundred grants on Tuesday, and among those projects are some literary efforts.

The New York Times did not, of course report on every single recipient, but here are the bookish ones it did cover:

  • The Jane Austen Summer Program's immersive online tool allowing users to explore Austen's writings, personal items, and documents in a re-created version of her home.

  • An oral history project that collects stories related to the life and work of author Flannery O'Connor.

  • Books on Black tourism in the Jim Crow era, Black and Latina women's contributions to hip-hop, mothers who are digital media influencers in South Korea, and the uncredited dancers who rehearsed choreography for Hollywood musicals.

In total, $28.1 million is going out to projects in 39 states and Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
