Elizabeth Helsinger F’97 Named First M.H. Abrams Senior Fellow at the National Humanities Center
Elizabeth Helsinger F’97 is spending 2007-08 as the first Meyer H. Abrams Senior Fellow at the National Humanities Center. The new fellowship program, named for the NHC co-founder and literary scholar, supports postdoctoral scholarship in the humanities. Helsinger’s project is titled “’A Peculiar Music’: Poetry, Art, and Song in Nineteenth-Century Britain.”
Yale University Press recently published Helsinger’s book Poetry and the Pre-Raphaelite Arts: Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Morris, which resulted from her ACLS-supported research. Elizabeth Helsinger is John Matthews Manly Distinguished Service Professor, Departments of English and Art History, at the University of Chicago.
