Hamilton College President Joan Hinde Stewart, who will retire from Hamilton on June 30, has been named a resident associate at the National Humanities Center for the 2016-17 fellowship year.
The National Humanities Center, located in Research Triangle Park, N.C., is a private, nonprofit organization and the only independent institute dedicated exclusively to advanced study in all areas of the humanities. The center provides scholars with the resources necessary to generate new knowledge and further understanding of all forms of cultural expression, social interaction, and human thought. During her residency, Stewart will carry out research on Joan of Arc.
“I am delighted to welcome Joan Stewart as a resident associate at the National Humanities Center for 2016-17,” said NHC President and Director Robert Newman. “Her project on Joan of Arc promises to be a major scholarly contribution, and her thoughtfulness and wit certainly will enliven our community of scholars.”
Stewart, who became Hamilton’s president in 2003, has also been elected to the board of trustees of the National Humanities Center.
