History professor receives ACLS fellowship

Michael Kulikowski, professor of history and classics and head of the Department of History, has received a 2013 Collaborative Research Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies. He and Gavin Kelly, associate professor, University of Edinburgh, will publish "The Landmark Ammianus Marcellinus," an accessible, critical translation of the understudied fourth-century historian, whose writings provide an invaluable window into the dynamics of the late Roman empire.

The fellowships were awarded to seven teams of scholars that cross boundaries of discipline, methodology and geography to undertake new research projects that will result in joint publications. The program, which is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to demonstrate the creative potential of collaborative research in the humanities and related social sciences.

ACLS, a private, nonprofit federation of 71 national scholarly organizations, is the preeminent representative of American scholarship in the humanities and related social sciences.
