Assistant Philosophy Professor Jen Marusic has been awarded the Marie Curie Fellowship from the Henkel Foundation. This award will allow Marusic to work with Dominik Perler at Humboldt University in Berlin for the 2013-14 school year and beyond and will fund Marusic’s work in the history of philosophy.
The Gerda Henkel Foundation website describes the fellowship as follows: “This funding initiative is co-financed by the European Commission under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research. One objective of this fixed-term programme is to increase networking between researchers in the historical humanities at the international level, including researchers in religious, cultural and political sciences under the special programme “Islam, the Modern Nation State and Transnational Movements”. Other goals include the promotion of trans-national academic exchange, increasing transnational mobility, facilitating further education and the positive and long-term influencing of the research environment in both origin and destination countries.”
The Humanities Division extends sincere congratulations to Professor Marusic on this honor.
