Politics professor Todd Sechser and media studies professor Siva Vaidhyanathan will direct the two newest labs for interdisciplinary research sponsored by the University of Virginia’s Democracy Initiative.

 

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded the University of Virginia $2.95 million to support the Democracy Initiative, an interdisciplinary teaching, research and engagement effort announced last year to bring together a diverse range of scholars, government leaders and practitioners to study and advance the prospects of democracy around the world.

 

The University of Virginia will create 20 new Research Professorships in Democracy and Equity to examine underlying causes that fueled the violent white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville and at UVA on Aug. 11 and 12, 2017.
