The Center for the Humanities has announced its semester-long research fellowship awards for 2014-2015, which will go to the following faculty:

Funso Afolayan (History)
“The Yoruba in the Nineteenth Century: Warfare, State, and Society in Pre-colonial Africa”

Jennifer Borda (Communication)
“Deliberating Working Motherhood: Reconstructing Ideologies of Gender, Work, and Family in the Mediated Public Sphere”

Lucy Salyer (History)
“Erin’s Hope and the Forgotten Right of Expatriation”

Scott Weintraub (Spanish/LLC)

Funded by the Center’s general endowment and the Ben and Zelma Dorson Endowment in the Humanities, Faculty Research Fellowships provide a semester-long opportunity for junior and tenured faculty to pursue humanities research with no teaching obligations. Awardees are expected to participate in the Faculty Fellows Lecture Series in the year following their fellowship.
