Abstract: Three faculty members at Washington University in St. Louis have won prestigious research fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Cuillé, Martin and Miller are among 74 scholars from across the United States to receive NEH fellowships, which were announced Dec. 12. In all, the NEH awarded $12.8 million to support 253 humanities projects. “The humanities offer us a path toward understanding ourselves, our neighbors, our nation,” said NEH acting chair Jon Parrish Peede. “These new NEH grants exemplify the agency’s commitment to serving American communities through investing in education initiatives, safeguarding cultural treasures and illuminating the history and values that define our shared heritage.” Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the NEH supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy and other areas by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation.
