Two UW faculty were chosen as the UW nominees to the NEH for the Summer Stipend Award.  The NEH will award winners $6000.00 for research to be done in the Summer of 2015.

This year, the College of A&S transferred the responsibility for running the internal selection process for the NEH nominees to WIHR.  

WIHR ran a workshop on August 28, to help promote awareness of the NEH Summer Stipend program and to address questions that prospective applicants might have.

WIHR will conduct another workshop in the Spring of 2015.

WIHR is very pleased to be able to guarantee $6000.00 each to the two UW nominees, either through the NEH or, if not selected by the NEH, through WIHR itself.

The two UW nominees for the NEH for the 2015 Summer Stipend Award are:

Paul Flesher, Professor, Department of Religious Studies
Mosaics and Palestinian Targums: Torah and Temple in the Synagogues of Sepphoris and Beth Alpha
Dr. Paul V.M. Flesher

Julia Obert, Assistant Professor, Department of English
Postcolonial Psychogeographies: Walking the Imperial City.
Dr. Julia Obert
