We are pleased to announce that our very own Ayten Tartici has been awarded the 2020 American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Emerging Voices Fellowship. In response to the severe economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is designed to identify and assist a vanguard of scholars whose voices, perspectives, and broad visions will strengthen institutions of higher education and humanistic disciplines in the years to come. Ayten will spend the
2020-21 academic year as a postdoctoral fellow at Georgetown University, and will be affiliated with the Georgetown Humanities Initiative. The fellowship will allow her to revise her dissertation into a book. Congratulations, Ayten!
