The integration of humanities texts and methods of inquiry into a required writing course for STEM students, followed by faculty training, implementation of the course, and the creation of a digital archive.

Arguing the Humanities is a course redesign project that seeks to integrate substantial humanities content and texts into a required developmental course for STEM students that focuses on close reading and analytical writing. The project goal is to give STEM students broader exposure to significant works of the human intellect and imagination, and to develop the habits of mind required to analyze these works and write persuasively from and about them.

A four-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the influence of Cicero and ancient Rome on law, government, and culture in Enlightenment-era Britain.

Dr. Ronald Weber and Dr. Jessica Sheetz Nguyen are proposing a four-week summer Institute for twenty-five teachers and graduate students in the humanities, classics, history, and social sciences. The Institute will take place in Rome. The purpose of the Institute will be to understand how in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries—the years following the break between England and the papacy—Rome served as a world intellectual center that contributed to the emerging national and global identity of the English people. To do this Institute participants will concentrate upon the intersection between the rhetoric of the Roman orator, Marcus Tullius Cicero and the rhetorical display, ceremony and instruction constructed by emperors and popes in the form of processional routes and ceremonial centers in the Roman Forum and the Campus Martius.

Preparation of a book-length study on the popular political leaders of ancient Greece known as demagogues.

My book project, “Watchdogs of the People: Demagogues and Popular Culture in Ancient Greece,” represents the first comprehensive history of the demagogue ("leader of the people") in antiquity. Along with tracing the development and practice of demagoguery, it will utilize a popular culture-based approach to illuminate the concerns of everyday people as reflected in the rhetorical appeals of the demagogues. The book will ask timely questions concerned with the common good, such as when and why polarizing political figures arise, by what cultural appeals they attract a significant following, and how democratic societies can produce responsible leadership while remaining in touch with the concerns of average citizens.

Research and writing leading to publication of a book on how African American women used classical Greco-Roman traditions of rhetoric and art to promote racial equality in 19th-century America.

Teaching and Testifying asks what the thriving culture of classical Greco-Roman adaptations in nineteenth-century America meant to African Americans, and to popular conceptualizations of race, gender, and citizenship, before and after Emancipation. From schoolrooms to public lectures to art galleries, the classics were omnipresent in early Americans’ everyday lives—even as classical education operated as a social machinery of exclusion that denied access to many African Americans, especially women. This book narrates the hidden history of black classicism as a popular cultural phenomenon. I show how black women speaking in public performed embodied hybridizations of classical rhetoric and black cultural expressions that promoted racial equality and shattered the myth of white classical inheritance.

Research and writing of a monograph that examines classical curricula while also compiling a searchable digital database of Greek and Latin sources on education in the classical period, from the 4th-1st centuries BCE. 

“The Classical Past in the Ancient Classroom” offers the first comprehensive account of what and how ancient students learned about the history of Classical Greece and democratic Athens in the centuries following their collapse. I analyze school texts, teaching handbooks, and rhetorical exercises composed after the fourth century BCE in order to address two questions. First, which historical figures and events from Classical Greece did (and did not) feature prominently in ancient school curricula? Second, how did ancient educators preserve the cultural memory of democracy and free expression in imperial societies that supported neither of these institutions? This project proposes that ancient schools became the most important vehicle for preserving the legacy of Classical Greece as a touchstone of democracy to the present day. I am seeking an NEH Summer Stipend to fund the early-stage primary source research for this book-length study.

This project investigates two questions: (1) How have modern historians portrayed the ancient Greek sophists? (2) What ideological assumptions have informed these various descriptions of the sophists? Texts for analysis include political, philosophical, and literary histories of Greece published in Britain from the period of the American Revolution until World War I. This research will provide the basis for two journal articles. Ultimately, it will also provide the basis for major sections of a book about modern reception of Athenian popular government and culture. The publications resulting from this research will be of interest to literary historians, political historians, classicists, and historians of rhetoric.

12 months of stipend support (1-3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The ARIT NEH fellowship program supports scholars who conduct long-term interdisciplinary research in the humanities in Turkey. Their fields of study include art, archaeology, literature, linguistics, musicology, religion, and all aspects of cultural, social, and political history. NEH fellows interact with Turkish and U.S scholars at the ARIT research centers in Istanbul and Ankara, where their intellectual exchange promotes a broad-based understanding of the ancient and modern Near East. This scholarly interaction has enabled ARIT-NEH fellows to produce groundbreaking publications that have been shared with the public through their teaching and community outreach programs. ARIT center directors in Istanbul and Ankara facilitate access to research resources and colleagues in the country. For its NEH FPIRI program, ARIT requests 12 months total fellowship funding per year. Research tenures may cover 4 to 12 months, supporting 1 to 3 fellows annually.

The NEH Fellowship program at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) gives U.S. scholars the opportunity to conduct research in Greece and utilize the excellent resources available on its campus. As the ASCSA’s most prestigious fellowship, earmarked exclusively for post-doctoral scholars to carry out research in the humanities, the NEH awards are a critical component of the School’s overall fellowship program. Each fellow contributes to the diverse academic community at the ASCSA, with research being conducted on a broad range of topics in the humanities. The research of our NEH fellows results in publications, lectures, and conferences that reach a wide audience of scholars, students, and the public in the U.S. and abroad. This proposal requests funding for 20 fellowship months per year for three years. The length of the proposed fellowships will range from 5 to 10 months depending on the selected applicants.
