Marquette Faculty Fellowships awarded by Loyola

February 15, 2008

Loyola University New Orleans has awarded five 2008 Marquette Faculty Fellowships to faculty members to support their two months of full-time work on scholarly or creative projects during summer 2008. The 2008 recipients were selected for their ability to raise the scholarly profile of the university, as well as contribute to the fellow’s body of research, quality of the design, and description of the project, and that projects will be published, exhibited, or performed.

  • Alice Clark, Ph.D., Music History and Literature – During the summer, Clark will be working on a draft of an essay for the History of Medieval Music about the Fourteenth-Century Motet.
  • Artemis Preeshl, Theatre Arts & Dance – Preeshl will synthesize Eastern and Western physical comedy at Artaud and the Balinese Theater Festival in Bali and coach commedia dell’arte and Asian clowns in Shakespeare at the Technical University in Kuala Lumpur and Queensland Shakespeare Festival in Brisbane, Australia.
  • Cathy Rogers, Ph.D., Mass Communication – Rogers plans to conduct a qualitative study of the use of persuasion in public opinion formation and coalition building, with particular emphasis on challenges New Orleans faces following Hurricane Katrina.
  • Josefa Salmon, Ph.D., Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures – Salmon will work on an anthology of Latin American thought and culture from the pre-Colombian period to the present.
  • Lee J. Yao, Ph.D., College of Business Yao’s plan for his project is to use variation in growth across U.S. firms to distinguish between different explanations for the cause of lower persistence of accruals, which are good proxy for investment returns.

Marquette Fellowships are intended to support scholarly and creative activities by Loyola University’s tenured and tenure-track faculty, and provide $7,500 for each recipient.

The university president, with the provost, select the Marquette Faculty Fellows upon the recommendation of the University Committee on Grants and Leaves.
