Faculty in the College of Arts and Letters won more National Endowment for the Humanities fellowships this past year — five — than faculty of any other university. The number was as many as Harvard, Stanford and Michigan combined.
The nationally competitive grants allow faculty to take a year off to write a book or work on some other major project. Notre Dame pays the difference between the grant amount and their annual salary.
The grant winners were: Marina Roseman, anthropology; Joseph P. Amar, classics; Xiaoshan Yang, East Asian languages and literatures; Jan Hagens, German and Russian languages and literatures; and Susan Youens, music.
