Univ. of Illinois Prof gets taxpayer money to study French lesbian activism

The National Endowment for the Humanities announced this year’s recipients of $21.1 million in federally-funded grants earlier this month.

A chunk of the agency’s taxpayer cash will go toward a study of the recent “history of French lesbian activism,” reports The Washington Free Beacon.

University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign history and women’s studies professor Tamara Chaplin will conduct the groundbreaking research into Gallic tomboy agitators. She’s calling it “Postwar French Media, and the Struggle for Gay Rights,” “a book-length study of the history of French lesbian activism since World War II.”

For the project, Chaplin will receive a summer stipend of $6,000.
