National Humanities Center selects two A&S professors as 2024-25 Fellows

Two faculty members in the College of Arts and Sciences have been named as National Humanities Center (NHC) Fellows for the 2024-25 year. Kim Haines-Eitzen, the Paul and Berthe Hendrix Memorial Professor of Near Eastern studies, and Mostafa Minawi, associate professor of history and director of Critical Ottoman and Post-Ottoman Studies, will pursue research projects in residence at the NHC in Durham, North Carolina.

“NHC fellowships are highly selective. It is a real honor to have two scholars from Cornell Arts and Sciences recognized with fellowships in the same year,” said Deborah Starr, professor of Near Eastern studies and chair of the department. “Near Eastern Studies is particularly excited to see the research of our department and graduate field faculty supported by this prestigious fellowship.”

Minawi and Haines-Eitzen are among 31 Fellows appointed for the 2024-25 academic year, chosen from among nearly 500 applications.
