Dartmouth Professor Josh Compton Wins Whiting Foundation Fellowship

4 June 2015

The Institute for Writing and Rhetoric at Dartmouth College is proud to announce that Professor Josh Compton has won a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation.  Professor Compton plans to use his fellowship to travel to Perth, Australia during the Fall term of 2015.

While in Australia Professor Compton will primarily work with two colleagues at the University of Western Australia, James Dimmock and Ben Jackson, who are experts in the fields of exercise, health, and sports psychology.  These three scholars have been working with each other for the past two years, ever since Dimmock and Jackson discovered Compton’s important work on inoculation theory.  One of the central questions the group will contemplate during Compton’s visit to Australia involves how to promote healthier lifestyles among adolescents.
