ACLS Digital Justice Seed Grants


Global Affairs


The Afterlife of the 1988 Chilean Plebiscite (Chile 88) is a bilingual digital humanities website that explores the national and international impact of the 1988 vote that led to Chile's return to democracy. An ACLS Digital Justice seed grant will be used to: (1) diversify the digital archive on Chile's democratization process and (2) create a bilingual technical infrastructure aimed at supporting the expansion of Latin American and Latinx digital humanities more broadly. The new digital humanities project will be directed to a Spanish and English-speaking international public interested in democratic transition, Latin American history, indigenous activism, and the role of the arts and humanities in political change.
