Matthew Smith

Matthew SmithCongratulations to Dr. Matthew Smith, Department of Humanities and Creative Arts, and Department of History. Dr. Smith was recently awarded an $88,911 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant on behalf of Miami Regionals. The grant was one of 13 awarded out of 60 proposals in 2018 as part of the NEH's Dialogues on the Experience of War initiative. It focuses on the training of veteran discussion leaders and the creation of an undergraduate humanities seminar, “From War Zone to Home,” for student veterans. It will also create public programs on veterans’ homecomings.

The successful grant application included contributions by HCA colleagues Dr. Michael Carrafiello (HST), Dr. Anthony Miller (HST), and Dr. Brian Baer (PHL), who will be team-teaching the seminar with Dr. Smith in the 2018-2019 academic year.
