Hayes, Mihesuah, Rosenblum named Keeler Intra-University Professors

Three faculty members have been named Keeler Family Intra-University Professors for the 2010-11 academic year.

E. Bruce Hayes

The professorships give faculty members an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of an academic specialty, broaden the depth of a defined field of study or start a new academic endeavor and promote collaboration across disciplines. Keeler professors are granted one semester free of departmental responsibilities to engage in exchange with faculty from other disciplines, take courses, develop cross-disciplinary projects and/or team-teach in one or two courses in another department or school at KU.
Hayes will work with the Department of Classics. His research project centers on Roman satirical works as a crucial subtext for late 16th century French satire.
Mihesuah will partner with the Environmental Studies Program and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Her research areas include American Indian history, Choctaw history and culture, traditional Indigenous foodways and environments, Indigenous women, activism, repatriation and stereotyping. She also is a novelist.
Rosenblum will work with faculty and staff at the Spencer Museum of Art to look at the evolving roles of museums and libraries in supporting teaching, learning and research in the digital age. His work at KU Libraries focuses on scholarly communication and digital publishing.
