Dr. Amy Laurel Fluker was among 20 college and university educators named a Visiting Research Scholar by the National Endowment for the Humanities. She was selected to participate in the Summer Institute on the Visual Culture of the American Civil War and Its Aftermath, hosted by the City University of New York Graduate Center in New York City, July 9-21, 2023. The Institute focused on how visual media expressed and shaped popular views on the Civil War, before, during, and after the conflict. It included seminars led by noted historians, art historians, archivists, and museum curators, as well as hands-on workshops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, and the New York Historical Society.
