U.Va. Philosophy Professor Mitchell Green Awarded ACLS Fellowship For Study At National Humanities Center

March 15, 2000 -- Mitchell S. Green, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Virginia, is among nine scholars in the humanities and social sciences from throughout the U.S. and Canada selected by the American Council of Learned Societies to receive a prestigious Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship for Recently Tenured Scholars. The fellowship, for long-term, unusually ambitious projects, provides a stipend for a year’s residency at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park, N.C.

Green, director of graduate admissions in philosophy at U.Va., writes on philosophy of language and mind, metaphysics, and aesthetics. He was a University Teaching Fellow at U.Va. in 1995-96 and received his B.Phil. from Oxford and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh.

He will use his fellowship to pursue a project titled "Expressive Meaning: Self-Expression and Self-Constitution in Language and the Arts." The interdisciplinary study of the phenomenon of expression is of potential interest to philosophy, linguistics, psychology and art criticism.

The ACLS fellowship is funded with assistance of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
