Nathaniel Persily, JD ’98, James B. McClatchy Professor of Law, recently received an Andrew Carnegie Fellowship. The program, created last year by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, awards up to $200,000 grants to scholars conducting social science and humanities research on challenges to democracy and the international order. Persily, a nationally known expert on the law of democracy, plans to research “The Campaign of the Future,” examining how big data and the Internet will change the ways candidates campaign, parties mobilize supporters, and voters cast their ballots. He recently served as senior research director of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration. For more on this, please see the sidebar.
