Campbell Grey Named ACLS Fellow

Campbell Grey

Campbell Grey, Associate Professor of Classical Studies, has been named a 2019 Fellow by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). The fellowship will support his current research project, Living with Risk in the Late Roman World.

Grey’s project explores everyday interactions between human populations and the physical world in the period between the third and sixth centuries CE. He studies the late and post-Roman world, with a particular emphasis on rural communities in late antiquity. Grey has previously received fellowship and grant support from the National Science Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

“The 2019 ACLS Fellows exemplify ACLS’s inclusive vision of excellence in the humanities and humanistic social sciences,” said Matthew Goldfeder, director of fellowship programs at ACLS. “They are working at diverse types of institutions, on research projects that span antiquity to the present, in contexts around the world; the array of disciplines and methodologies represented demonstrates the vitality and the incredible breadth of humanistic scholarship today.”

The Fellowship program provides Fellows with financial support for their projects. It is the longest-running grant program of the ACLS.
