Daniel Tichenor named to Carnegie fellows

Daniel Tichenor, a political scientist who serves as the University of Oregon’s Phillip H. Knight Chair of Social Science and a Senior Faculty Fellow at the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, has won a 2015 Andrew Carnegie Fellowship from the Carnegie Corp. of New York.

Tichenor is among 32 scholars selected from a pool of more than 300 nominees. The Carnegie Corp., which promotes “the advancement and diffusion of knowledge and understanding,” celebrated its inaugural class with a full-page ad in The New York Times and other publications.

Fellowships went to researchers in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses the theme "Current and Future Challenges to U.S. Democracy and International Order." Winning proposals cover such topics as policing and race, big data and privacy, the impact of an aging population, the safety of generic drugs and how attitudes are formed among voters.
