The National Endowment for the Humanities announced earlier this week a grant award of $227,420 to the LSA as part of its Media Projects Production program. The grant will be used to support production of a second season of our Subtitle podcast, with 28 new episodes focused on language and linguistics. Patrick Cox, winner of the LSA's Linguistics Journalism Award in 2019 will continue in his role as lead producer, as will documentary film and radio producer Kavita Pillay. Cox previously served as the producer of the World in Words podcast that was also supported by the NEH.  The LSA is excited to continue its sponsorship of this outstanding forum for informing the public about language and linguistics research.

The NEH grant will cover about 80 percent of the total project expenses, with the remainder to be raised through individual donations, corporate sponsorships, private foundation grants, and paid advertising. As a charitable, tax-exempt non-profit organization, the LSA welcomes financial contributions to support its mission, including production costs associated with the Subtitle podcast. Donations for this purpose may be made by visiting our secure online donation facility.
