Resources developed for Franz Boas Papers: Documentary Edition include diverse Knowledge Mobilization (papers, chapters, conference presentations, workshops and audiovisual production) and volumes to be published by the University of Nebraska Press, in both print and electronic form with accompanying digital resources. We're also sharing annual Milestone Reports submitted to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, which has generously funded this project.


A primary digital work for this project is an OMEKA Database, developed to share documents and research internally among members of the Boas editorial team and Indigenous communities.
