Brett Millier awarded a grant to attend NEH Summer Institute

Brett Millier (English and American Literatures) has been awarded a grant to participate in a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute titled Mortality: Facing Death in Ancient Greece, which is  sponsored by the Institute for Humanities Research at the University of California at Santa Cruz in collaboration with the Athens Centre in Athens, Greece where the program will be based. The institute encourages the study of mortality in ancient Greece as the basis for comparative study across cultures, disciplines, and historical periods. During the institute, Brett’s goal is to both enhance her teaching in CMLT 101 and develop a comparative interdisciplinary course on the issues raised in the Institute’s readings and discussions.
