College of Arts and Sciences announces Faculty Enhancement Program awardees for fiscal year 2021
The College of Arts and Sciences announces the Faculty Enhancement Program awardees for fiscal year 2021.
The purpose of the program is to increase the numbers and proportion of faculty members engaging in research, scholarship and creative activities, particularly those with the potential for garnering extramural funding and recognition. The program provides up to $10,000 each for faculty in disciplines that have not historically enjoyed access to substantial start-up or extramural funding opportunities.
The following are the awardees and their project titles:
• Andie Faber, modern languages, "Grammatical Gender Representation in the Spanish of Heritage Speakers."
• Shay Logan, philosophy, "Hyperdoctrines in Philosophical Logic."
• Benjamin McCloskey, modern languages, "Socratic Historiography in Xenophon: a New Philosophical Paradigm."
• Mary Elizabeth Walters, history, "Hospitality Is the Law of the Mountains: The 1999 Kosovo Refugee Crisis in Albania."
• Anthony Warnick, art, "A Poetic Investigation of Views of Nature in the Anthropocene."
Tenure-track faculty members within three years of hire were eligible to apply for funding for summer salary and research support. Applicants identified a particular project culminating in a scholarly work that would enhance their research or creative pursuits. The funding provided by the program will be complemented by mentoring from a senior colleague at K-State or elsewhere, in addition to group activities among the awardees.
A special thank you to previous Faculty Enhancement Program recipient Katherine Karlin, English department, for assisting this year in the review process.
