National Endowment for the Humanities 23rd Annual Report--1988.
National Endowment for the Humanities (NFAH), Washington, DC.
Congress established the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in 1965 to support scholarly research, education, and public programs in the humanities. Under the act that established the NEH, the term humanities includes, but is not limited to, the study of the following disciplines: history; philosophy; languages; linguistics; literature; archaeology; jurisprudence; the history, theory, and criticism of the arts; ethics; comparative religion; and those aspects of the social sciences that employ historical or philosophical approaches. This report lists federal funds obligated for grants made in fiscal year 1988 through the Endowment's five divisions (Education Programs, Fellowships and Seminars, General Programs, Research Programs, and State Programs) and two offices (the Office of Challenge Grants and the Office of Preservation). The 2,113 grant listings are preceded by a brief introduction describing the nature and purposes of the programs administered by each division. The grants themselves are listed in alphabetical order according to each grant-making program. A list of the panelists who evaluated the thousands of applications in fiscal year 1988 is included as well as lists of the senior staff members of the NEH and of the members of the National Council on the Humanities. Two tables present a summary of grants and awards for fiscal year 1988 and a financial report for the same fiscal year. (JB)
