Lewis Center Faculty Receive Humanities Council Rapid Response Grants for Innovation

The Humanities Council announced the 2020 awardees of the Rapid Response David A. Gardner ’69 Magic “Mini-Grants” for innovation. Following a swift call for proposals, the grants will support 35 faculty and research staff from 26 different departments and programs across the University. Two Lewis Center faculty members, Lecturer in Visual Arts Eve Aschheim and Associate Professor of Theater Brian Herrera, are among the recipients.

Aschheim will lead a Global Painting Summer Group, an international group of Princeton University students and alumni from various class years that will convene weekly for a painting workshop over Zoom, informed by discussions of place.

In the Performance and American Cultures Summer Manuscript Intensive led by Brian Herrera, six promising first-time book authors will virtually workshop their materials with three leading scholars in American Studies and Performance Studies.
