Associate Professor of Political Science Keegan Callanan has been appointed to the National Council on the Humanities, a board of 26 private citizens that advises the chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. He began his six-year term in September.
“I look forward to contributing to the endowment’s efforts to identify and support the most promising new projects and initiatives in humanities research and education,” said Callanan. “The NEH occupies a special place in the humanities grant-making world because it is funded by the American taxpayer. This seems to impose a special responsibility on the fiduciaries of the endowment to ensure that the grants support work of the highest caliber.”
