Henry Parkes, assistant professor of music, has been awarded a fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for the 2017-2018 academic year. The foundation, whose mission is to promote international cultural dialogue and academic exchange,  offers highly competitive and prestigious fellowships to allow outstanding scientists and scholars from abroad to complete long-term research stays in Germany.  During his fellowship year, Parkes will divide his time between the Monumenta Germaniae Historica (Deutsches Institut für Erforschung des Mittelalters) in Munich and the Institut für Musikforschung at the University of Würzburg.

He follows in the footsteps of ISM/YDS faculty Vasileios Marinis, who was the recipient of a Humboldt fellowship in 2015.
