Assistant Professor Giulia Brancaccio has been named a Himan Brown Faculty Fellow. These fellowships are made possible through generous support from the Himan Brown Charitable Trust, directed to the College of Arts & Sciences by Richard Kay ’58. The fellowships are named after legendary radio director and producer Himan Brown, one of Richard Kay’s clients and the trust’s funder, who died in 2010 at the age of 99.

The fellowships are designed to help the dean and chairs recognize talented faculty in a broad range of disciplines. Brancaccio will hold the title Himan Brown Faculty Fellow for a five-year period.
