      Dean College Receives NEH Grant to Transform Education in the Humanities

      08/02/2017

      Dean College is among 245 recipients slated to receive a total of $39.3 million in grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)

      Franklin, MA (August 2, 2017) – Dean College is among 245 recipients slated to receive a total of $39.3 million in grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) aimed at supporting vital research, education, and public programs in the humanities.

      This is Dean College’s first grant application submitted and award received from NEH. The College plans to use the awarded funding to infuse the humanities into Core Distribution offerings by developing and piloting two courses in the history of science that incorporate hands-on labs: “History of Science” and “Henrietta Lacks: Medicine, Race, Class, and Gender in America.”

       “Culture shapes science, and science shapes culture,” says Project Director and Associate Professor of History Dr. David Dennis. “From early ideas about the Earth’s place in the cosmos to popular attitudes toward climate change and cancer treatment, the humanities are essential for how we understand the past and present of modern scientific society. This project furthers the ongoing revitalization of the humanities for the twenty-first century at Dean College and beyond. The opportunity to combine history courses with lab science underscores Dean’s record of educational innovation. I look forward to working with science and humanities faculty, as well as external scholars, to bring this groundbreaking curriculum to our students.”

      A full list of grant recipients can be found by visiting www.neh.gov.
