PHOENIX — Ten Arizona projects collectively received $2 million in funding to support research, education and public programs in the humanities.

Two projects in Phoenix and Scottsdale were awarded just over $581,000 to go toward digitizing 100,000 pages of Arizona newspapers that were published before 1963, as well as to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to meet collections preservations goals through sustainable storage improvements.

In Tucson, the University of Arizona received over $850,000 for six projects through the National Endowment for Humanities grants.

The largest allocation of $252,350 went to rehousing and safeguarding archaeological wood specimens that are critical to the American Southwest’s heritage.

Another grant of nearly $250,000 went to the preparation of an interactive map on the history of shared churches in early modern Europe (1500-1800).

At least 30 educators will study the influences of migration on the culture and history of the United States at a two-week residential institute through a $200,000 grant.

A smaller allocation of $60,000 will go toward research and writing of a book on the history of how transgender medical procedures have supported traditional reproduction technology.

Two projects in Flagstaff are set to use nearly $648,000 to better understand part of its history.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Flagstaff will use $458,000 to make a film documentary that will examine the relationship between the Diné and Dene clans.

Northern Arizona University will use nearly $190,000 for a virtual and residential program on understanding Route 66 within U.S. culture and history.

Other programs at the University of Arizona will use funding for research.
