Elizabeth (Lisa) Davis (Anthropology) and Kinohi Nishikawa (English and African American Studies) are among four Princeton University faculty members named as recipients of the Graduate Mentoring Awards by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and the Graduate School. The award recognizes Princeton faculty members who nurture the intellectual, professional and personal growth of their graduate students.
Davis has been a faculty member since 2009. Her research and writing are grounded in the Ottoman history of the Greek-speaking world and focuses on the intersections of psyche, body, history, and power. She is currently the acting director of the Humanities Council’s Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities.
Nishikawa joined the faculty in 2014. He studies 20th- and 21st-century African American literature, book history, and popular culture. Nishikawa is a member of the Humanities Council’s Executive Committee.
They will be honored during the Graduate School’s Hooding ceremony at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 29.
