Louisiana College French Professor Receives NEH Grant

May 30th, 2007

Ms. Cecile Barnhart, Instructor of French at Louisiana College, applied for and received acceptance to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) program “Berber North Africa: The Hidden Mediterranean Culture,” a four-week summer institute for College and University Professors which will be held at Oregon State University from June 25-July 20, 2007.

The idea of this institute was born out of an international conference organized with the support of the Oregon Council for the Humanities and the Middle East Studies Center at Portland State University in May 2005. The conference, a first in North America, was devoted to North African minorities, specifically Berber, Coptic and Jewish populations. How had these minorities negotiated their blossoming and their survival in North Africa? How had they interacted with Arab-Islamic civilization? What is their significance in the post-colonial, post-cold-war world?

Ms. Barnhart is one of 24 faculty members, nation-wide, chosen to participate in this prestigious summer program.
