Meet USC Dornsife's New Faculty
USC Dornsife welcomed 27 new faculty members in the 2011-12 academic year. Hailing from universities around the world, this year’s group of scholars are some of the best and brightest in the nation, bringing with them years of experience and research in a wide range of disciplines.
“The arrival of such a remarkable group of distinguished scholar-teachers demonstrates our continuing commitment to reaching ever higher levels of academic excellence,” said Howard Gillman, dean of USC Dornsife.
The new faculty members join departments including American studies and ethnicity, biological sciences, economics, English, history, linguistics, mathematics, physics and astronomy, political science, psychology and religion.
Their research interests range from Islamic and Near Eastern studies to microbiology in extreme geochemical environments. The group includes an award-winning writer; a world-renowned expert on the U.S. Supreme Court; a former USC Andrew Mellon Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow; and a social historian who will found the USC Center for Japanese Religions and Culture in USC Dornsife.
