Two Professors Receive National Endowment for the Humanities Awards

Summer Stipends Support Hager and Hubert’s Work on Projects in the Humanities
Hartford, CT, March 27, 2015 – For their continued work on projects in the humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities awarded selective Summer Stipends to Christopher Hager, associate professor of English, and Rosario Hubert, assistant professor of language and culture studies. Hager will continue work on his project, The Epistolary Culture of the U.S. Civil War, while Hubert’s stipend will support her work on Latin American Fictions of East Asia. On the strength of their applications, Trinity was one of five institutions with two stipend recipients, joined only by Brandeis University; Princeton University; the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; and the University of Pennsylvania. The Summer Stipends support scholars’ full-time work on a humanities project for a period of two months.
