The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) recently announced $24 million in grants for 225 humanities projects across the country, including work by Hallie Meredith, an assistant professor, career track, of fine arts at Washington State University.
Meredith’s project, “Fragmentary and Unfinished Art: Documenting Undocumented Late Roman Art and Process,” is the only project from the state of Washington selected for NEH funding. The $6,000 summer stipend will support her research and writing of a monograph about late Roman carving techniques through the study of incomplete stone sculptures.
“The implications for this project are wide-ranging, extending beyond the central period of study,” Meredith said. “I expect to make a significant interdisciplinary contribution to discourse in archaeology, ancient history, art history, classics, craft history and theory and economic studies, among other fields of study.”
