English, history, and political science faculty receive Dean’s Research Development Awards
Nicole Aljoe, Ryan Cordell, Gretchen Heefner, and Michael Tolley awarded seed funding to develop research projects
June 4th, 2014
Four College of Social Sciences and Humanities faculty members have received CSSH Dean’s Research Development Awards for the Spring 2014 cycle, representing the fourth cohort of recipients since the program began in fall 2012. The grants are designed to support CSSH faculty members’ research and lead to proposals for more significant support from external sources. A committee of CSSH faculty and Dean’s Office staff reviewed all proposals, and then make recommendations to the Dean.
Each year, CSSH offers two funding cycles for this initiative. For more information on the application process, please review the call for proposals.

- Nicole Aljoe, Assistant Professor of English, “Racing the Rise of the Novel: Black Lives and the Development of the European Novel in the Long Eighteenth Century (1688-1832)”;
