Professor Robin Bernstein has received a Public Scholar Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The NEH's Public Scholars program supports "the creation of well-researched nonfiction books in the humanities written for the broad public." She will use the year-long fellowship to support the writing of her book, The Trials of William Freeman: A Story of Murder, Race, and America's First Industrial Prison. The full list of this year’s grantees is available on the NEH”s website.
Please join us in congratulating Professor Bernstein on this achievement!
