Humanities Center Announces 2018 Grant Recipients

Morgantown, WV—The West Virginia University Humanities Center announced its first round of grant recipients last week, supporting scholarly projects in history, culture, and the arts in multiple disciplines. Funded by a WVU endowment from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, grants were awarded in two categories: interdisciplinary team grants and summer grants to support scholarly activity.

While several of the grants went to support traditional projects in history, literature, musicology, and other humanities fields, applicants were given preference for projects that speak to the Center’s commitment to interdisciplinarity and public humanities.
