The National Endowment for the Humanities has announced recipients for its 2013 Fellowships for University Teachers and its Preservation Assistance Grants. These grant competitions are very competitive and of the four awards received by Illinois Universities, NIU faculty and staff have received three of them (the University of Chicago received the fourth). We in the Division of Research and Innovation Partnerships congratulate Professors Fehrenbach and Einboden and Director of the Anthropology Museum Jennifer Kirker-Priest on their national recognition. We also take pride in noting that both Professors Fehrenbach and Einboden received Research and Artistry grants to support their award-winning work during its formative stages.
Heide Fehrenbach (HIST) received a Fellowship for University Teachers for "The Humanitarian Eye: Photography and the 20th-Century Quest to Save Innocents Abroad"
Jeffrey Einboden (ENGL) received a Fellowship for University Teachers for "Islamic Literacy in Early America: Muslim Sources of U.S. Authorship"
Jennifer Kirker-Priest (ANTH) received a Preservation Assistance Grant for the Anthropology Museum for "Textile Storage and Environmental Monitoring."
