The Department of English is proud to announce that Joseph Haley, who received his PhD in English from Johns Hopkins University in 2016, has been named a 2019 Mellon/ACLS Public Fellow.

“ACLS partnered with the Mellon Foundation in 2010 to create a program that could demonstrate the serious practical value of the doctoral education in the humanities,” said John Paul Christy, director of public programs at ACLS. “The 2019 fellows will bring the skills and capacities honed through advanced research and teaching to organizations advancing equitable access to affordable housing, researching and promoting best practices in the justice system, fostering new opportunities for transatlantic cooperation in civil society, and much more. Through the impact of their work, Public Fellows highlight the dynamic potential of the humanities PhD to address pressing social issues.”
