Hill School Teacher Awarded National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship

Hill School Instructor of History and Co-Director of the Humphrey Family Writing Center Catriona Miller, Ph.D. '08 has been accepted to participate in The Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation's workshop for educators sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Echoes of History: Mistreatment and Incarceration in the American West will teach educators about the mistreatment of marginalized groups in the American West, primarily Native Americans, German immigrants during World War I, and the 120,000 Japanese Americans, two-thirds of them U.S. citizens, who were incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyo., and nine other camps around the country.

Dr. Miller is one of 72 educators selected from a group of more than 175 applicants. She will spend six days learning about the Japanese experience in the United States, the racism and prejudice faced by the immigrants, how their paths intersected with Wyoming's Native American communities, and the multigenerational mental health trauma that many members of the incarcerees' families still suffer today.

Congratulations, Dr. Miller!
