Samford University history professor Dr. Ginger Frost has been awarded a $4,000 research stipend by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The stipend will fund her summer research trip to Britain, where she will work on a book tentatively titled "As Husband and Wife: Cohabitation in Nineteenth-Century England." During the eight-week trip, she will conduct research in London and at Lancaster and Oxford universities.

She will also present a paper at Oxford Brookes University on the topic "'Repentance, but No Absolution': Eleanor Marx, Free Unions, and the Men's and Women's Club."
