UW-Green Bay’s Aldrete lands second NEH fellowship on ancient Rome
Award-winning UW-Green Bay Prof. Greg Aldrete has landed yet another prestigious National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship, this time for the 2012-13 academic year. The grant will provide 12 months support for Aldrete to research and write the book Riots in Ancient Rome. He says periodic riots gave Rome a reputation for lawless violence and indicted its poor as unruly, but he argues many of the riots were in fact organized, instigated and exploited by the political and social elite. It is Aldrete’s second NEH fellowship. Currently on leave from UW-Green Bay as a postdoctoral fellow with the humanities research institute at UW-Madison, Aldrete will return to teaching in Green Bay for the 2011-12 academic year.  For more on this latest honor, click http://blog.uwgb.edu/inside/index.php/log-news/headlines/02/07/faculty-aldrete-neh-fellowship/
