Yonatan MalinThe Program in Jewish Studies congratulates Yonatan Malin, who is on a project team that’s been awarded a $50,000 NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grant!

"The Klezmer Institute is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Phase I Digital Humanities Access Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for 2021-2022. The Klezmer Archive project aims to create a universally accessible, useful resource for interaction, discovery, and research on all available information about klezmer music. The project will adapt and apply methodology from computational musicology and library sciences to create a tool to facilitate study of the klezmer corpus in a deeper, more systematic manner and on a more comprehensive scale than previously possible. This digital archive will be an important resource for Jewish music studies, and will also benefit researchers in the fields of corpus studies, computational musicology, and library sciences."
