Martha Hodes ICY ’76 awarded two Fellowships!

Martha Hodes ICY ’76, Professor of History at New York University, was recently awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship and a fellowship at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. The two fellowships will fund time away from NYU to write her fourth book. In this work, Hodes will be exploring history and memory through a 1970 airplane hijacking, in which she was a twelve-year-old passenger held hostage in the Jordan desert for a week–and missed the first week of 7th grade at Hunter! The book is under contract with HarperCollins.
