BYU history professor selected for National Endowment for Humanities program

William J. Hamblin, an associate professor of history at Brigham Young University, has been selected from a national applicant pool to attend one of 17 summer study programs supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Hamblin will participate in the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s five-week institute program “Holy Land and Holy City in Classical Judaism, Christianity, and Islam” at the University of Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies.

Specializing in the Near East, Hamblin teaches courses on Near Eastern history and ancient world history. He has also published many articles with BYU’s Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship.

The National Endowment for the Humanities is a federal agency that supports seminars and institutes each summer at colleges and universities where teachers collaborate and study with experts in humanities disciples.

Approximately 375 college and university faculty members will participate in summer study programs this year. The knowledge they gain will be used to teach more than 50,000 students the following academic year.

For more information, contact William J. Hamblin at (801) 422-6469.
