Watenpaugh Receives National Endowment of Humanities Award
Professor Heghnar Zeitlian Watenpaugh has received a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support her research for a book about the medieval Armenian city of Ani.
“This has been my goal for many years—to publish scholarship that is engaging and readable and that reaches multiple publics,” said Watenpaugh, author of the award-winning 2019 book The Missing Pages: The Modern Life of a Medieval Manuscript, from Genocide to Justice. ”At a time of pandemic when question marks loom over the future of the arts and the humanities, it is all the more important for the NEH Public Scholar program to support the publication of books that connect the most advanced research with the broad public.”
The Public Scholar program supports the creation of well-researched nonfiction books in the humanities written for the broad public.
