NJIT history professor receives national endowment for humanities
Date:2/5/2009

Richard B. Sher, PhD, a professor of history at NJIT and a former Guggenheim Fellow, has received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Fellowship to edit a volume of the correspondence of James Boswell, the eighteenth-century Scottish writer. Boswell was best known for his biography of Samuel Johnson. Sher's research focuses on the thought and culture of 18th century Scotland.

Yale University Press will publish the book in its Research Series of the Yale Boswell Editions, one of the oldest and most esteemed literary series in the world.

Sher, of Maplewood, will research the project this winter and spring at Yale University and next summer at the National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh.

"Receiving an NEH Fellowship is a great personal honor," Professor Sher said, "but it also highlights the extraordinary scholarly activity of the NJIT history faculty and the entire federated history department at NJIT and Rutgers University-Newark." Sher has been on the NJIT faculty for 30 years and holds the rank of distinguished professor.
