NEH Distinguished Professorship
Supported by an endowment from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the title of NEH professor is bestowed as a reward for scholarship and teaching in the Humanities. The NEH professor receives funding for a project related to faculty development and support of the Humanities program. The appointment is made by the Provost and VCAA for a term of 3 years.
As of Summer 2018, the current NEH Distinguished professor is Dr. Katherine Zubko. Dr. Zubko brings to the role a long-standing commitment to the the Humanities program. She has been teaching in HUM 124 since 2009, and served as the HUM 124 coordinator for two years. She also served as Interim Director of the Humanities Program in Spring 2017, and is involved in the Humanities readers' revision process. As an anthropologist who teaches in the Religious Studies program and also as a dance scholar, Kate brings an interdisciplinary lens to her scholarship and teaching.
