Virginia Tech Humanities Summer Stipend recipients are Stephen L. Baehr, professor of foreign languages and literatures, "The Machine and Its Enemies in 19th and 20th Century Russian Literature and Culture: The Railroad and the Cow"; Glenn R. Bugh, associate professor of history, "The Byzantine Cavalry in Renaissance Venice"; Darleen Pryds, assistant professor of interdisciplinary studies, "The Liturgy of Power in Late Medieval Europe: King Robert d'Anjou and Preaching"; Stephen K. White, professor of political science, "Weak Ontology and Contemporary Political Theory"; and Joseph L. Wieczynski, professor of history, "Early Russian History on the Opera Stage."

White's proposal was selected to be forwarded to NEH for its 1997 Summer Stipend competition as the senior nominee, and Pryds is Tech's junior nominee for the NEH Summer Stipend.
