CHCI welcomes two new staff members

CHCI welcomed two new CHCI staff members this month. We are thrilled to have Jason and Bill with us as and they very much look forward to working with our current and future members.

Jason Rozumalski
Jason Rozumalski joined CHCI at the beginning of September as Global Programs Manager, a new position designed to steer CHCI’s ongoing efforts and programs to promote new forms of international collaboration in the humanities. Jason joins us through the Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows postdoctoral program. He is a historian of early modern Europe and completed his PhD in history at the University of California, Berkeley. He has also studied and held academic positions at the University of Cambridge, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the Jagiellonian University. Before joining CHCI, Jason served as the Executive Director of the Peder Sather Center (a research consortium of Norwegian universities) and as the Assistant Director of the Center for British Studies, both housed at UC Berkeley. Jason has held research fellowships with the Social Science Research Council, the Institute of Historical Research, the Huntington Library, the Folger Shakespeare Library, University College, London, and the Yale Center for British Art. Jason can be reached at jrrozumalski@wisc.edu.

Bill Warner

Earlier this week, Bill Warner joined CHCI as Events and Membership Manager and will focus on social media and the web, annual and board meetings coordination, and CHCI membership and networks. Bill joined CHCI from Beloit College where he previously worked as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History. He holds a B.A. from James Madison University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research focuses on the socio-economic history of Afghan migration to and from British India, with particular attention paid to soldiers, laborers, and moneylenders. While at UW-Madison, Bill served as a Higher Education Leadership Project Assistant in the Graduate School organizing professional development events, workshops, and programs for graduate students. He also helped launch the History Lab, a writing center for undergraduate students in history courses. Bill can be reached at warner@humanities.wisc.edu.

Bill is replacing Craig Eley, who, as many of you know, has left CHCI to pursue an independent career in radio and sound production. We are looking forward to working with Craig on future projects in that new capacity. Stay tuned for more information on this soon!
