NEH, an independent federal agency and one of the largest funders of humanities projects in the United States, announced nearly $31 million in grants for 188 projects.

Craiutu will use the award to work on a new book project examining the tradition of political moderation and its connection to the rise of political democracy in France from 1830 to 1900. The new manuscript will serve as a sequel to his previous book, “A Virtue for Courageous Minds: Moderation in French Political Thought, 1748-1830.”
