During the past year, faculty from the University of Notre Dame’s Department of History received multiple awards and fellowships in recognition of their research. The honors include a Guggenheim fellowship, two invitations to the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, N.J., several fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Haskins Medal—the highest award granted by the Medieval Academy of America.
“These awards recognize what a fine department we really are,” says Patrick Griffin, Madden-Hennebry Professor of History and chair of the department. “Few history departments in the United States can match us in this regard.
“We have won these awards and maintained an enviable level of scholarly productivity while providing our majors with a rigorous and engaging education. We are proudest of striking this balance.”
