Ann Fabian says the School of Arts and Sciences has top-notch administrators who are committed to excellence on every front, and she is quick to credit her colleagues—deans, faculty, and administrative support staff under the leadership of executive dean Douglas Greenberg and former acting executive dean Ziva Galili—who also worked on the various Mellon grant initiatives.
“That we succeeded in raising money from outside sources is really a tribute to the talent and dedication of our faculty and our graduate students. All I had to do was describe what my colleagues were doing,” Fabian notes.
Mellon grants are supporting graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in these areas:
- 100 doctoral students in art history, comparative literature, English, history, linguistics, and philosophy
- 10 postdoctoral fellows in English, history, and women’s and gender studies
