The NEH grant will support a three-day conference at the University of Denver in July 2024 aimed at better understanding the radio and listening’s role in shaping processes of colonization and decolonization through a series of interdisciplinary conversations.

“It is an honor to receive National Endowment for the Humanities support for this project, which will bring over 30 scholars from around the world to the University of Denver in Summer 2024 for a conference and follow-up publication,” Stanton said.

“My co-leads on this project, Dr. Rebecca Scales of the Rochester Institute of Technology and Dr. Alejandra Bronfman of the State University of New York at Albany, and I hope that our conference will also engage DU students as well as Denver-area community members, supporting DU’s commitment to the public good,” she added.

NEH’s most recent award announcement encompassed 280 humanities projects nationwide, totaling $41.3 million. This is the third grant Stanton has received from NEH.
