Daub, the Marta Sutton Weeks Faculty Scholar in the Humanities, returns to the Clayman Institute in a leadership position after an appointment as a faculty research fellow in the 2018 academic year.

Daub has served as director of undergraduate studies for the Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages and director of German Studies. He is the current director of the Andrew W. Mellon Program for Postdoctoral Studies in the Humanities. He also recently received a Dean’s Award for Achievements in Teaching.

“It’s an immense honor to be chosen as director of the Clayman Institute, and I look forward to building on the incredible track record in gender scholarship established by previous directors,” Daub said. “I am thrilled that in this role I will have the opportunity to collaborate with so many talented students, faculty, advisers and staff. I am committed to maintaining and expanding the vibrant intellectual life that thrives at the Clayman Institute.”

With this appointment, Daub becomes the 11th director and the first man to lead the Clayman Institute for Gender Research, which began in 1974 as the Center for Research on Women. After serving for nine years, current director, SHELLEY CORRELL, continues at Stanford as director of the Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab.
