Congratulations to alumJessica MacLellan(Ph.D. 2019), who has been named to the inaugural cohort of Emerging Voices by the American Council of Learned Societies! ACLS has named 45 newEmerging Voices Fellows for 2020.
ACLS launched the Emerging Voices Fellowship program in May 2020 in response to the economic downturn and uncertainty in academe in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is designed to assist a vanguard of scholars whose voices, perspectives, and broad visions will strengthen institutions of higher education and humanistic disciplines in the years to come.
Emerging Voices Fellows are placed in one-year remote posts starting in September 2020 with ACLS Research University Consortium partners across the country. The inaugural cohort of this rapid response program will advance their research agendas while undertaking a variety of roles including teaching, collaborative research, program development, and public engagement, based on the needs of each institution. Each fellow receives a stipend of $60,000, health insurance, and a $5,000 discretionary fund.
Dr. MacLellan is currently a visiting assistant professor of Anthropology in the Division of the Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles. (Anthro Digest date: 08/21/2020)
