Hiram College (Hiram, OH 44234-3409)
Kirsten Parkinson (Project Director: May 2012 to November 2017)
The Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature: Extending Humanities Scholarship and Learning Throughout our Community

Endowment of a community reading program and scholar-in-residence in the Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature.

Hiram College requests a $75,000 grant to support a community reading program and scholar-in-residence for its signature Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature. The Center brings distinctive humanities programs to the Northeast Ohio community and demonstrates significant experience with the proposed community reading program. The Center has twice received Big Read program funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. A scholar-in-residence would create new opportunities for scholarly research that the Center would disseminate through publications, presentations, and collaborations. Hiram has received two NEH Challenge Grants; first in 1994 for our humanities collection in the campus library and again in 2000 to support our Center for Literature, Medicine, and Biomedical Humanities. In both cases, Hiram successfully met our fundraising goals to create new endowments. Our humanities collections and programs have thrived as a result and created enduring value.
