WGSS professor receives National Endowment for the Humanities honor

Carla Kaplan, the Davis Distinguished Professor of American Literature, received a Public Scholar grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the organization announced on Tuesday. Kaplan was one of just 36 honored scholars, joining the likes of prize-winning authors Diane McWhorter and Edward Ball, and received the grant to support her work on the book Queen of the Muckrakers: The Life and Times of Jessica Mitford (1917-1996). The Public Scholars program is a new NEH initiative designed to “support well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership.”
