Art historian April Eisman, an Iowa State University associate professor of art and visual culture, has received a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship to spend the 2018-2019 academic year doing research in Germany. She will use the yearlong fellowship to complete her second book, Angela Hampel: A Contemporary Artist in East Germany, and begin work on a third book project. Eisman also co-organized and is a guest faculty member for “Culture and the Cold War: East German Art, Music and Film,” an interdisciplinary NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers scheduled June 17 through July 14 at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
