Research Fellowships at the Ransom Center
The Ransom Center has awarded more than 50 research fellowships in the humanities for 2009-10. These fellowships support research projects requiring substantial use of the Center's collections of manuscripts, rare books, film, photography, art, and performing arts materials.
The scholars, with more than 20 coming from abroad, will use Ransom Center materials to research projects focusing on subjects such as "The Left-Conservative Imagination: Norman Mailer's Political Thought," "Dreams of a Totalitarian Utopia: Literary Modernism and Politics," and "Radio Literature: The Broadcasts of Welles, Thomas, Beckett, and Stoppard."
The stipends are funded by individual donors and organizations, including 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.
