The CLSC Awards 5 new Peterson Fellowships

CLSC congratulates our 2014-15 Peterson Fellows: Matthew Fritz-Mauer (Criminology, Law & Society/Law); Justin O’Neill (Law); Nicole Sherman (Criminology, Law & Society); Thomas Worger (Law/History); and Melissa Wrapp (Anthropology). The Microsemi/Peterson fellowships are made possible because of a gift from Jim Peterson, CEO of Microsemi Corporation, who has been a generous supporter of Center activities. The selected fellows participate in a year-long set of activities designed to further their interdisciplinary research training, through intellectual collaboration and exchange, and through the production of an original project.
