Metzgar received the grant for her project, “The American Narrative: U.S. Information Diplomacy Since World War II.” The project connects history to contemporary debate about U.S. government-sponsored broadcasting and other messaging directed to international audiences.

Assistant professors Suzannah Evans Comfort and Danielle Kilgo also received the Emerging Scholars grant from AEJMC. They’ll receive their grants at the AEJMC annual conference in August in Washington, D.C.
