Raja Adal, assistant professor in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences' Department of History, received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

NEH grants support innovative digital projects for the public, humanities initiatives on college campuses and infrastructure projects at cultural institutions.

As a Fellow for Advanced Social Science Research on Japan, Adal will use this grant to support his project “The Typewriter and the History of Writing Technologies in Japan,” which includes research and writing for a future book. 

Adal is one of only seven scholars Pennsylvania — and the only researcher at Pitt — to receive this award.
