Faculty awarded grants to support interdisciplinary teaching and research

Six faculty received grants through the College’s current award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which supports faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences who seek to learn new skills to enhance their teaching and research.

Professor David Cook-Martin was awarded an Academic Enterprise Leave to study social networking analysis. He will incorporate this methodological approach into his research project on global networks of highly skilled workers; he also plans to teach it to students in his methods course.
