Paola Demattè Invited to Participate at Beyond East and West

Paola Demattè (Professor, History of Art + Visual Culture) has been selected as an NEH Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of 24 seminars and institutes supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The National Endowment for the Arts is a federal agency that, each summer, supports these enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions, so that faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Demattè will participate in the institute entitled, Beyond East and West: the Early Modern World, 1400-1800. The 3-week program (June 19 – July 7, 2017) will be held at Indiana University, Bloomington and directed by Kaya Şahin and Julia Schleck.
