National Endowment for the Humanities Awards Professor Lange
April 14, 2017
Assistant Professor Allison K. Lange has earned a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) stipend to continue her work on suffragette research.
Visual politics, using imagery to promote a cause, has become an integral part of the modern political machine. And, according to Lange, visual politics played a major part in the success of suffragette movement.
Lange, whose book Images of Change seeks to explore the power of imagery in the fight of 19th century women to gain the vote, was recently awarded a grant to continue her research. The NEH awarded Lange $6,000 in summer stipends to forward her research and finish the book.
The Summer Stipends grant supports individual humanities scholars who are looking to work on their projects full-time for two months.
Of the 800 applications received by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Lange’s research is part of the eight percent of projects that were chosen to be funded. Lange’s project, titled The Visual Politics of the Woman Suffrage Movement from American Independence through the Nineteenth Amendment, will help her complete the book.

July 25, 2019—The windows in the Center for Engineering, Innovation, and Sciences (CEIS) next to the Pike walkway have appeared more colorful than usual this summer, but the installation within is more than just a pretty sight. For the students who helped piece everything together, the “1,000 Words” installation in the gallery vitrine of the CEIS common area represents how the Wentworth community sees itself.
