Stonehill professor awarded Summer Stipend

(April 18, 2019)

Stonehill College associate professor of communication Wanjiru Mbure was awarded a Summer Stipend by the National Endowment for the Humanities, which recently announced $28.6 million in grants for 233 humanities projects across the country.

Mbure will use the award to complete the manuscript for her interdisciplinary book, “The Tenacious Defenders, Offenders and Inventors of African Beauty 1951-1971.” The book connects realities and personalities in New York, Johannesburg and Nairobi and builds on Mbure’s earlier, award-winning work on the impact of colonialism and globalization on cosmetic advertising.
