Pandey Named IRH Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity Fellow and Honored Instructor

Associate Professor Nandini Pandey was awarded a Race, Ethnicity, and Indigeneity Faculty Fellowship by UW's Institute for Research in the Humanities.  The IRH holds an annual competition for up to two one-semester fellowships for UW-Madison faculty with projects that focus directly on race, ethnicity, and/or indigeneity in any part of the world and historical period and that foster comparative study of these issues with a clear significance for the humanities. 

These fellowships are prestigious appointments and represent one of the ways the College of Letters and Science seeks to strengthen the opportunities for concentrated research by faculty in the humanities. 

Additionally, Pandey was named Honored Instructor, an award developed by University Housing that allows residents to recognize outstanding classroom instructors. Over the years, students who live in University Housing have honored hundreds of instructors on campus.

Currently, Pandey teaches Latin 301, Latin Literature of the Roman Republic and Integrated Liberal Studies 203, Western Culture: Literature and the Arts I.  In spring 2019, she will teach Classics 322, The Romans and Latin 515, Vergil.
