Six professors from the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences have been named 2020 Conrad Humanities Scholars. The Conrad Humanities Scholars Award is funded by a gift from the late Arlys Conrad, whose estate gift recognizes mid-career scholars with potential for continued achievement in humanities.

The recipients are using the awards to pursue a variety of research topics, from Latin American history to the intersections of literature, medicine, and neuroscience. The designation is for five years, with recipients receiving $5,000 per year in discretionary funding.

George GasynaSlavic languages and literatures and comparative and world literature, is being recognized for his research in modern Polish literature and culture. He is an internationally recognized scholar on the works of Joseph Conrad, author of “Heart of Darkness.” Gasyna’s first book, “Polish Hybrid and Otherwise: Exilic Discourse in Joseph Conrad and Witold Gombrowicz,” examines the triple compact made by displaced authors with language, their host country and the homeland left behind.
