Professor Allison Meyer Receives National Recognition

Selected as National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Scholar

Assumption College Assistant Professor of English Allison Meyer has been selected as a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholar. She was chosen from a national applicant pool to attend one of 30 seminars and institutes supported by the NEH. Each summer, the federal agency provides enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities and cultural institutions so that faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Professor Meyer will participate in a seminar entitled “Tudor Books and Readers: 1485-1603.” The five-week program will be held at the Plantin-Moretus Museum in Antwerp, Belgium; at Senate House Library, University of London; and at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford.

The 16 educators selected to participate in the Tudor program each receive a stipend of $3,900 to cover their travel, study and living expenses. Nationwide, 437 NEH Summer Scholars have been selected; they will teach over 113,925 American students during the 2014-2015 academic year.
