Heather Hurst, associate professor of anthropology, was named a Frederick Burkhardt fellow by the
American Council of Learned Societies. The fellowship program is designed to aid recently tenured faculty and is funded
by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Burkhardt fellowships carry a $95,000
stipend and a $7,500 research budget and allow awardees to take up yearlong residencies
at institutions whose resources and scholarly communities are suited to facilitate
a proposed research project. Hurst's project is titled "IDEAS in Cultural Heritage:
Preserving Maya Murals through Imaging, Documentation, Education, Access, and Sustainability—Institute
for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University in 2018–2019."
