Arts and Sciences Professor Awarded Fellowship
Associate Professor of History Matt Crawford, Ph.D., was recently awarded a short-term Beckman Center Fellowship by the Philadelphia-based Science History Institute.
The fellowship includes a stipend that will allow Matt to continue work as a researcher in residence on his second book - a study of metallurgy and mining in late colonial Peru - in the institute's archives for one month.
An expert on the Spanish Empire in Latin America, Matt's work connects the History of Science with the history of Latin America and the Atlantic World.
This latest award follows on the heels of Matt receiving an Ohio History Grant in March that will fund his continuing work on an oral history of the university's Liquid Crystal Institute.
