Professor Mara R. Wade has been named an Associate of the Center for Advanced Study for 2014-2015 for her project, "Emblematic Practices." CAS Associates are tenured University of Illinois faculty members whose proposals are selected in an annual competition. These appointments grant one semester of teaching release time in order to pursue an individual scholarly project. With the Professors and Fellows, Associates form the core of the Center for Advanced Study Community. They also participate in a yearly roundtable discussion of research interests and are invited to offer a future CAS presentation.

Congratulations to Robert Jenkins, who received the 2013-2014 LAS Academic Professional Award. More information about this award is here.
