This fall the College of Arts and Sciences announced the appointment of two postdoctoral scholars at the forefront of their fields to yearlong fellowships. Philosopher Tempest Henning and Native American studies and media scholar Rachael Nez are the recipients of Emerging Voices Fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). The prestigious fellowships enable them to remotely teach and mentor IU students as well as conduct their own research during the 2021-22 academic year.
“The faculty and I are immensely pleased to have attracted two such important and original scholars to Indiana University,” said Rick Van Kooten, executive dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Henning, who earned her Ph.D. at Duke University, will be affiliated with the College’s Political and Civic Engagement (PACE) program. Nez, whose Ph.D. in Native American Studies comes from the University of California, Davis, will be affiliated with the College’s program in Race, Migration, and Indigeneity (RMI).
