UNIVERSITY CITY, SHARJAH – American University of Sharjah Assistant Professor Jeffrey King received the College of Arts and Sciences Research Award for Humanities and Social Sciences on April 30.

A CAS committee reviewed the work of King and other professors earlier in the semester. 

King said the committee reviewed his work over the past three years. It included papers on the World Health Organization and media, “naming and shaming” in international relations, fiscal policies and oil, non-profit organizations and women’s protests. 

He called the award “a validation of what was a lot of hard work over a long period of time.”
