W&L’s Brock Awarded National Endowment for the Humanities Grant

(April 11, 2019)

Michelle Brock, associate professor of history at Washington and Lee University, has received a $49,959 National Endowment for the Humanities  grant for her project, “Mapping the Scottish Reformation.”

“Mapping the Scottish Reformation” is a database and mapping tool to explore the lives, movements and networks of the Scottish clergy between 1560 and 1689.

“My co-director, Chris Langley of Newman University, U.K., and I are delighted and honored to receive the NEH grant,” said Brock. “This award would not have been possible without the work of project team member, W&L librarian Mackenzie Brooks, and the many other folks who gave us invaluable feedback on our drafts. We are still in the early stage of the project and are so excited about its potential to help scholars, students and genealogists better understand religious change in early modern Scotland.”

NEH grant awards support cultural infrastructure projects, advanced scholarly research, humanities exhibitions and documentaries and the preservation of historical collections.
