Dr. Cristina Stanciu Receives NEH Stipend Award

Congratulations go out to Assistant Professor Cristina Stanciu who received a $6,000 summer stipend from the National Endowment of the Humanities in support of her second book, “The Makings and Unmakings of Americans: Indians and Immigrants in American Literature and Culture, 1879-1924,” which is under contract with Yale University Press.

In “The Makings and Unmakings of Americans,” Stanciu will show how Native American and new immigrant writers and public intellectuals intervened in the debates over what it meant to be an American at the turn of the 20th century, debates which continue to resonate in contemporary discourses over national identity.

Congrats, Cristina!
