From page A4 | May 02, 2014 |

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded UC Davis $1.725 million for humanities research over the next seven years.

It will fund four three-year research initiatives allowing faculty to work collaboratively on key issues in the humanities. The initiatives will be chosen through a campus-based competition.

The money will support colloquia, workshops and conferences, student recruitment and the hiring of recent doctoral graduates as visiting assistant professors.

“This investment by the Mellon Foundation represents a vote of confidence in the kinds of collaborative and cross-disciplinary humanities research that we do here at UC Davis,” said Jessie Ann Owens, dean of the Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies, in a news release.

The grant is a renewal of an earlier award, that supported the establishment of four initiatives: Early Modern Studies; Environments and Societies; Digital Cultures; and Social Justice, Culture and (In)Security.
