Another huge congratulations goes out! This one to Professor Erik McDuffie who is the recipient of a 2017 fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies. This is his second prestigious fellowship this year!

McDuffie, a professor of African American studies and of history, is one of only 71 fellows chosen from nearly 1,200 applicants, according to an ACLS news release.

The ACLS Fellowship, which supports scholars for six to 12 months of full-time research and writing, is the second prestigious fellowship for McDuffie this academic year. He also received a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship last fall.

"Professor McDuffie’s scholarship is making critical contributions to the practice of historical research and is dramatically expanding our knowledge of the historic role African-Americans have played in national and global developments that defined much of the 20th century,” said Interim Provost John Wilkin. “He is an exemplary scholar and this is well-deserved recognition."
