Fulbright Scholar studies at Queen's
Caleb Hamman graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Butler University in 2011 with a degree in Political Science and Philosophy. There, he wrote an honours thesis about the peace building activities of Israeli and Palestinian youth. For this project he conducted fieldwork in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the summer of 2010. As a student, Caleb worked with Indianapolis youth in afterschool centres, volunteered with labour campaigns, participated in a dialogue group with Iraqi refugees, edited the campus newspaper and presided over student organisations in peace studies and philosophy. In 2009, he completed an internship at the Center for American Progress in Washington, DC.
As a Fulbright Scholar, Caleb will carry out research at Queen’s University Belfast concerning the political practices and the peace building activities of youth in Northern Ireland. Following his Fulbright year, he will pursue a PhD in Political Science and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame where he has received admission and a University Presidential Fellowship.
