2014-2015 Trustee Professorship

Dr. Shelton Waldrep in the Department of English was awarded the 2014-2015 Trustee Professorship to complete his work on a book manuscript, Future Nostalgia: Performing David Bowie, for which Dr. Waldrep has received a contract from Bloomsbury. 

The Trustee Professorship is devoted exclusively to honoring and supporting University of Maine System faculty already making noteworthy contributions to academic excellence on their campus. It was established in 1998 by the Board of Trustees to reward excellence among faculty members at each of the UMS campuses. The Trustee Professorship enables the awardee to be released from a portion of his/her teaching duties for an academic year and provides funding to support a scholarly project, chosen by the faculty member.
