Congratulations go out to associate professor Vera Keller, who has been named a 2019 Presidential Fellow in Humanistic Studies, along with fellow History faculty member Jeff Ostler.

Earlier this year, the UO announced that President Schill would fund a new set of fellowships to support faculty arts and humanities research and creative projects. These awards, of $13,000 each, are supported by discretionary donor funds and are intended to support productive scholars in their professional development and scholarship.
