Andrew Jackson


The Papers of Andrew Jackson project received $325,000 to prepare Volumes 11, 12, and 13 for publication, covering the presidential years 1833 through 1835. This grant is the second highest among the 21 awarded this year within the NEH Scholarly Editions and Translations program.

“This generous grant is the largest we have ever received from the NEH and comes as a welcome show of confidence in the quality and significance of our work,” says Dan Feller, professor of history and director of The Papers of Andrew Jackson project. “Together with the substantial increase in support we received this year from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, this three-year NEH award ensures that our progress towards completion of the series will continue and even accelerate.”

Architecture Professor Chosen as Design Research Fellow

Marshall Prado, assistant professor in the School of Architecture, has been selected as a 2018-2019 Exhibit Columbus University Design Research fellow.

Exhibit Columbus in Columbus, Indiana, is an annual exploration of architecture, art, design and community that offers an international symposium and exhibition.  Since 2015, the event has drawn visitors from around the world.

As part of the fellowship, Prado will participate in the 2018 Exhibit Columbus Symposium.  He will join other fellows to present a conversation on States of Design Education and introspections of their innovative research.  Prado’s research centers on robotic fabrication of fiber composite structures in architecture and the integration of computation and fabrication techniques into material systems and spatial design strategies. Companies that support his research include Oak Ridge National Laboratory Carbon Fiber Technology Facility, Owens Corning and Hexion Inc.

Prado is one of nine fellows from eight universities. The Exhibit Columbus committee received 32 proposals from 10 universities.
