PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] Associate Professor of Political Science and PSTC Associate Melani Cammett wins the Mellon New Directions Fellowship.

The Fellowship provides support to outstanding faculty in the humanities, broadly defined, to pursue systematic training outside of their own fields.  Cammett, a political scientist, will train at the Harvard School of Public Health as a full-time visiting scholar and postdoctoral student.  She will take coursework on health and health systems from diverse public health, sociological and anthropological perspectives during 2013-14 to further advance her current research in Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan, where she specifically examines state- and non-state providers in welfare regimes.
