Keren Ben-Horin, Textile Development and Marketing, 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 NEH is a federal agency that, each summer, supports these enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions so faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines.

Keren Ben-Horin will participate in an institute titled “American Material Culture: 19th-Century New York.”  The four-week program will be held at Bard Graduate Center and will be directed by Catherine Whalen and Katherine C. Grier. The 36 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive a stipend of $3,300 to cover their travel, study, and living expenses.

The approximately 537 NEH Summer Scholars who participate in these programs of study will teach over 93,975 American students the following year.
