Dr. Dana E. Powell awarded 2019–20 Cornell University SOH Fellowship

BOONE, N.C. — Dr. Dana E. Powell, assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Appalachian State University, is one of seven scholars in the United States and Canada selected for a Cornell University Society for the Humanities (SOH) Fellowship for the 2019–20 academic year. As part of the one-year fellowship, Powell will receive $50,000 in grant funding.

The theme of the 2019–20 fellowship is “Energy” — the fellows’ research projects must “reflect on the theme of energy, its past, present, and futures,” according to the Cornell University SOH website. Fellows spend the academic year in research and writing, participate in the weekly Fellows Seminar and offer one seminar course at Cornell that is related to their research.
