Robert Folkenflik, UC Irvine professor emeritus of English, and Ellen Greenberger, UCI professor emerita of psychology & social behavior, have been awarded Edward A. Dickson Emeriti Professorships for the 2010-11 academic year. The endowed professorships honor retired University of California faculty who continue to make significant contributions in the areas of university service, teaching and research. Folkenflik came to UCI in 1975 and co-authored with Murray Krieger the grant proposal that led to the UC Humanities Research Institute. He lectures and publishes on 18th century topics and such figures as Samuel Johnson and Jonathan Swift. Greenberger, who also joined UCI in 1975, researches social and cultural influences on adolescent and young adult development. She recently published a widely noted study in the Journal of Youth & Adolescence finding an increased sense of entitlement among college students.
