The Hazel H. Ransom Reading Room

The Harry Ransom Center has awarded more than 50 research fellowships in the humanities for 2008–2009. These fellowships support research projects requiring substantial use of the Center's collections of manuscripts, rare books, film, photography, art, and the performing arts.

Scholars from 17 states and 9 countries will use Ransom Center materials to research projects with such diverse titles as "Julian Barnes: A Mixture of Genres," "Terrence McNally: The Early Plays," and "Tradition and the Individual Talents: Dylan, Eliot, and DeLillo."

The stipends are funded by individual donors and organizations, including the Ransom Center, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Hobby Family Foundation, the Dorot Foundation, American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, South Central Modern Language Association, and The University of Texas at Austin Office of Graduate Studies.
