Racheal Fest selected as NEH Summer Scholar

Racheal Fest, adjunct faculty in the English department at SUNY Oneonta, has been selected as a 2019 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Scholar. In June, Fest will attend the faculty seminar “Writing and Democracy in Western New York,” a two -week program held at Cornell University and directed by Professors Sandra Gustafson and Shirley Samuels.

The Endowment is a federal agency that, each summer, supports enrichment opportunities at colleges, universities, and cultural institutions, so faculty can work in collaboration and study with experts in humanities disciplines. The approximately 222 NEH Summer Scholars who participate in these programs of study will teach over 29,000 American students the following year.
