Gabriel Mendlow, Professor of Law and Philosophy at the University of Michigan, has been awarded a Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship by the American Council of Learned Societies.

The one-year fellowship aims to support scholars in the humanities and social sciences in the crucial years immediately following the granting of tenure, and to provide emerging leaders in their fields with the resources to pursue long, unusually ambitious projects.

Professor Mendlow will spend his fellowship term, academic year 2021-2022, in residency at the John W. Kluge center at the Library of Congress, working on a book project on thought crime in Anglo-American law and legal philosophy.  In January, the National Endowment for the Humanities also awarded Mendlow a fellowship to support the project.

Mendlow teaches and writes in the areas of criminal law, criminal procedure, and moral, political, and legal philosophy.  He is a Professor in the Philosophy Department, and holds his primary appointment at Michigan as Professor in the Law School.

More information about the Burkhardt Fellowships is available on the ACLS website.
