Nefin Dinc selected for NEH seminar at American University
Monday, April 16, 2012
Communications Professor Nefin Dinc
SUNY Fredonia filmmaker Nefin Dinc, a documentary filmmaker and communications professor at SUNY Fredonia, has been invited and will receive a stipend to join “World War I in the Middle East,” a month-long seminar sponsored by the National Endowment of Humanities in Washington, D.C.
Sixteen scholars from college and universities will participate in a series of lectures, research and discussions at the seminar, to be held June 11 through July 10 at American University. Its goal is to advance ongoing research and/or teaching projects and to make scholarship accessible to additional teachers and scholars seeking information on how the Middle East was impacted by World War I.
Professor Dinc is using the seminar to inform her next documentary film project, which is based on the diary of an Austro-Hungarian soldier stationed in Istanbul during what was then known as the Great War.
Guest speakers (see list here) from the United States, Palestine and Turkey will be featured at the NEH seminar.
