This spring we will be welcoming to our IAS community not one but three new faculty members. This on top of the terrific hires last year of Nathan Suhr-Sytsma and Abdul JanMohamed in English.
First, as you know Kristin Phillips will be a joint appointment with IAS, Anthropology, and the MDP.
Second, Art History will be making its decision following this week's visit.
Third, Alvan A. Ikoku recently accepted Emory's offer as part of the Mellon searches. He will be joining the Department of English. Alvan is presently assistant professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and associated faculty at the Montefiore-Einstein Center for Bioethics. He has a MpPhil from Oxford, a MD from Harvard, and a Ph.D. from Columbia. Alvan's work focuses on literature and global health, bioethics and medical humanities, postcolonial theory, and Anglophone and Francophone literatures concerning Africa and its diaspora
Congratulations to Dr. Mari Webel, (Ph.D., Columbia University), Postdoctoral Fellow in African Studies and in Global Health, Culture, and Society who has been awarded a pretigious DAAD research grant to be used for several months of archival research in Berlin this summer.
IAS welcomes Dr. Kristin Phillips to the IAS faculty. Dr. Phillips has a Ph. D. in anthropology from the University of Wisconsin and specializes in the politics of rural development and education in East Africa.
