LEWISTON, Idaho – Marlowe Daly-Galeano, a professor of English at Lewis-Clark State College, has been selected as an National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholar to attend the NEH institute on “Transcendentalism and Reform in the Age of Emerson, Thoreau, and Fuller” on July 12-25 in Concord, Mass.
The NEH is a federal agency that supports these summer enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions, so that faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines. Daly-Galeano was chosen from a national pool of applicants to attend one of the 24 seminars and institutes put on this summer by NEH.
Daly-Galeano is among 25 teachers selected to participate in the program, and each receives a stipend of $2,100 to cover travel, study, and living expenses. Daly-Galeano’s two-week program will be directed by Sandy Petrulionis, a distinguished professor of English and American Studies at Penn State.
The NEH Summer Scholars are expected to pass along what they learn to the classes they teach the following year.
