In March, 2018, Barnard faculty members were awarded major research grants that support a range of research interests, enabling faculty to continue existing studies and support collaborations with other institutions.
In the American Studies program, Term Assistant Professor Jordan T. Camp and Assistant Professors Christina Heatherton and Manu Vimalassery received a grant from the Center for the Study of Social Difference at Columbia University. Camp, Heatherton, and Vimalassery will use the grant for their New Directions in American Studies (NDAS) initiative, which they won in partnership with colleagues from Columbia, CUNY, and the Maumaus School of Visual Arts in Portugal.
John Glendinning, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Biology, was awarded additional grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for his ongoing research with the University of Tennessee and the Developmental Exposure Alcohol Research Center. Glendinning will use the NIH grant to continue exploring how the sense of taste mediates behavioral and metabolic responses.
In addition, John Morrison, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, received an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation New Directions Fellowship, and Lisa K. Son, Associate Professor of Psychology, received a Fulbright Visiting Professor Award to South Korea; and for the first time, the College as an institution was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts for the 2019 Athena Film Festival.
