Mines professor receives National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship
GOLDEN, Colo., Jan. 3, 2008 –Assistant Professor Tina Gianquitto, who teaches in the Colorado School of Mines Division of Liberal Arts and International Studies, has been awarded a one-year National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Fellowship.
“I hope to show how women writers and activists in the late 19th century, instead of turning away from or ignoring the debates concerning evolutionary theory, were instead deeply interested in showing how that theory could be used to support radical social reform activities,” Gianquitto said.
“It’s important because it is a story that has not yet been told,” Gianquitto said.
Founded in 1874, Colorado School of Mines was established to serve the needs of the local mining industry.
