ACLS Awards over $15 million to 2012 Fellowship Recipients
The American Council of Learned Societies is pleased to announce the results of its 2011-12 fellowship competitions. ACLS awarded over $15 million to more than 320 scholars worldwide, making it a major source of support for humanistic scholarship in the United States
The 2012 fellows include:
- ACLS Fellows, individual scholars conducting research on topics in the humanities and related social sciences
- Charles A. Ryskamp Research Fellows and Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellows, scholars at specific academic career stages embarking on large-scale, ambitious research projects
- ACLS Digital Innovation Fellows and ACLS Collaborative Research Fellows, whose projects demonstrate the range and value of alternative research methods
- East European Studies Fellows, American Research in the Humanities in China Fellows, and Comparative Perspectives on Chinese Culture and Society grantees, whose work focuses on particular regions
- Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellows and Luce/ACLS Dissertation Fellows in American Art, graduate students conducting dissertation research or completing dissertation writing
- ACLS New Faculty Fellows, recent Ph.D.s appointed to two-year positions at universities across the United States where their particular research and teaching expertise answered curricular needs
"The crisis of underfunding in the humanities often makes headlines," noted Nicole Stahlmann, director of fellowship programs. "ACLS is pleased to be a positive counterpoint to them. We congratulate the fellowship recipients and wish them well in the hard work of forging new knowledge that will benefit their students, peers, and larger communities."
