Monica Bravo (Art & Archaeology), Angela Creager (History), and Ryo Morimoto (Anthropology) have received grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in a round of awards to humanities projects nationwide.

The awards will support three individual book projects. Bravo’s book “Silver Pacific: A Material History of Photography and Its Minerals, 1840-1890” will focus on the importance of the American West, its mineral resources, and Pacific trade networks to the history of photography. Creager’s project, “Environment, Mutation, Cancer: A History of the Ames Test,” will explore the cultural, political, and legal history of cancer in America by focusing on the Ames test for carcinogens. Morimoto will work on “Disasters, Crises and Robot Development in Japan and the U.S.” which will focus on the use of robots in disaster recovery, care for the elderly, and nuclear reactor maintenance.

These grants are among 260 humanities projects across the country receiving a total of $33.8 million in NEH support.
