The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia

Development of about 450 entries for the "Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia," an online reference resource that focuses on the history and culture of the region, which encompasses the City of Philadelphia and portions of the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers University-Camden seeks funding for The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia, a civic project to build knowledge and understanding about the region encompassing the City of Philadelphia and portions of the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. This multi-phase project is a collaborative, digital-first initiative to create, aggregate, and share information about a region and its history. With essential planning and demonstration projects completed and initial digital publishing underway, the project seeks support for a new phase of content development and temporary expansion of editorial staff for two years of accelerated digital publishing, resulting in a minimum of 450 new published essays within the grant period. The priority for content development will be to broaden and deepen the project's metropolitan scope with essays that define and illuminate "Greater Philadelphia" as a region.
