Godbey Awarded NEH Grant
Emily Godbey, associate professor of art history, has received a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to attend an NEH Institute for College and University Teachers this coming summer. Godbey is one of 25 college faculty members, graduate students and scholars of western U.S. history who will take part in the five-week summer institute to study aspects of the federal government's influence in this history.
Godbey plans to further two research projects and develop scholarly articles about her research throughout this seminar. The first project, "'Wish You Were Here' at the Trans-Mississippi: The Federal Stamp on the Omaha Trans-Mississippi and International Exhibition of 1898," investigates the role of the federal postal service in the Trans-Mississippi area and the exposition of stamps.
Her second project, "Currier & Ives: America on Mail-Order," will continue to explore Currier & Ives' business practices and how it made money through the use of disaster imagery on its mail-to-order, colored lithographic prints.
