The winner of the CCHA Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome has been announced! Please join us in congratulating Prof. Laura E. Migliorino as she will be off to Rome for a one-month fellowship to continue her work on “The Book as the Foundation of Humanities Education” this June!
Prof. Migliorino teaches in the Art Department at Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, and she has a subject-matter expertise in Studio Art Design, Photography, Drawing, and Art History. Her work on the project “The Book as the Foundation of Humanities Education” will focus on “integrating important texts from the Rare Book Collection at the Academy into [her] curriculum, serving as markers on a timeline” in order to “deepen and enhance the material.” The following is an excerpt from her application:
The book is a simple yet complex idea that has profound influence on culture, society, and religion that transcends time and civilization. The book is a platform or foundation for the studies of Humanities because it has so much power on the course of the human life. The impact of books, and the knowledge contained, dictates human history, influences religious and political policy, supports the powerful, and inspires the repressed. In early book creation, the relationship between word and image was essential. The word spoke to the privileged, the educated, and the images informed the poor and illiterate, yet both groups needed books to guide their lives.
Prof. Migliorino’s project is certainly quite comprehensive and exciting!
We would also like to state that this was a very difficult decision as we had so many wonderful proposals to review this year, with more than 15 applicants. Therefore, we would like to say thanks, again, to all of our competitive applicants.
Are you interested in an opportunity like this? Attend our National CCHA Conference in Baltimore, MD, from November 9-11, or check back in on the blog and the website to see if there is an opportunity for you! You can always follow us on social media, too.
