Deborah Tor, an assistant professor in Notre Dame’s Department of History, has recently been awarded fellowships from the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, N.J., and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Both awards recognize her research on the reign of the Great Seljuq Dynasty in the Islamic heartlands.
Tor will spend a full year in Princeton as an IAS member, writing her second book. She is one of two Notre Dame Department of History faculty members invited to the institute for the coming academic year. Tor and Professor Christopher Hamlin are also the latest of 10 Department of History faculty members to be so honored.
In addition, Tor is one of three faculty members from the College of Arts and Letters to be awarded an NEH fellowship for the 2013-14 academic year.
