Callaci and Sharafi

Emily Callaci, assistant professor of history, and Mitra Sharafi, associate professor at the Law School, have been offered Summer Stipend awards by the National Endowment for the Humanities. This is the first time two UW–Madison nominees have been awarded NEH Summer Stipends in the same year.
