HP Professor Appler Receives NEH Grant

Congratulations go out to Historic Preservation Assistant Professor Doug Appler for earning a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant for his project “Reassessing the History of Urban Renewal in the United States, 1950–1975.” The grants include the first awards made under NEH’s new Infrastructure and Capacity-Building Challenge Grant program, which will support infrastructure projects at 29 U.S. cultural institutions in 20 states and the District of Columbia.

Appler’s collaborative research grant for $42,000 will allow him to continue to develop urban renewal scholarship that explores geographies other than that of the stand-alone project in major central cities.
