Andrew Cayton receives National Humanities Center Fellowship


Andrew Cayton
Miami University Distinguished Professor of History Andrew Cayton joins 32 other scholars as a Fellow at the National Humanities Center for the upcoming academic year, 2012-2013.

Cayton and the other fellows, chosen from 436 applicants, come to the center from 16 states and the District of Columbia, as well as from Canada, France, Hungary, Japan, and the United Kingdom.

Each fellow will work on an individual research project and will have the opportunity to share ideas in seminars, lectures, and conferences at the center.

Cayton, who received the Frank H. Kenan Fellowship, is currently working on research projects including Imperial America, 1672-1764 (with Fred Anderson of the University of Colorado, Boulder), a volume in The Oxford History of the United States; and a book project, Love in the Time of Revolution.

The National Humanities Center will award more than $1.5 million in individual fellowship grants to enable scholars to take leave from their normal academic duties and pursue research at the center. This funding is made possible by the center's endowment, by grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and by contributions from alumni of the center.

The National Humanities Center, located in the Research Triangle Park of North Carolina, is a privately incorporated independent institute for advanced study in the humanities.
