Brendan Nyhan, a professor of government at Dartmouth College, has been named a 2018 Carnegie Fellow in recognition of his research on increasing media trust and countering misinformation in the era of fake news. He is one of 31 scholars and writers chosen this year by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to support significant research, writing, and publishing in the humanities and social sciences. Carnegie provides up to $200,000 with each fellowship to support a book or major study. Nyhan plans to continue his work at Dartmouth during a nonteaching term funded by the fellowship, and he expects to work with Dartmouth students for research assistance and data coding, he says.
