Emily Neumeier receives collaborative NEH grant

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Emily is on the team of six international scholars that received an NEH Collaborative Research Grant of $249,000. The three-year project is titled, "Visualizing Local Christian Communities in Muslim Cosmopolitan Istanbul in the 19th and 20th Centuries". The team will use multi-lingual sources to reconstruct the demography and topography of Istanbul's Greek Orthodox communities, producing articles, podcasts, interactive maps, data visualizations, and virtual and in-person exhibitions. As one of the key collaborators on the project, Emily will be investigating the built environment and architecture of these minority communities in one of the world's largest and most diverse cities. The project will be housed at UC Berkeley.
