Freedman Fellows 2009 Announced
The Freedman Center is very happy to announce the winners of the 2009 Freedman Fellows Program. The Samuel B. and Marian K. Freedman Digital Library, Language Learning, and Multimedia Services Center is a partnership between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelvin Smith Library. For the College of Arts and Sciences the Freedman Center is evidence of the College's commitment to the evolution of education and the integration of information technologies in its curriculum. For KSL the Freedman Center is the culmination of a ten-year vision for a center that provides faculty, students, and staff with the ability to utilize both analog and hardcopy information sources in digital works and presentations.
The Freedman Fellows Program is further evidence of the commitment of both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Library to revolutionizing education at Case Western Reserve University. This year, the Freedman Fellows Program will distribute five (5) $3,000 awards to successful fulltime faculty applicants who discuss and demonstrate how information technology will be used in teaching or research. Contributors to this program include the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities.
The following is a list of the 2009 Freedman Fellows Program Award recipients:
- William Deal, Professor, Department of Religion;
- Paul Iversen, Assistant Professor, Department of Classics;
- Daniel Lacks, Professor, Chemical Engineering
- Kathleen Meyer, Instructor, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing
- Peter Yang, Associate Professor, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures
It is with great pleasure that the Freedman Center, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Kelvin Smith Library welcome the award recipients to this program’s class of 2009.
The Freedman Center owes thanks to many people involved in making it possible to fund the five fellowship awards for 2009; as well as the numerous people involved in making the Freedman Fellows Program Award selections, as well as those who will contribute to the Seminar Week, running May 11-15, 2009.
