More than 50 fellowships awarded to scholars from 14 countries
The Ransom Center awarded more than 50 research fellowships for 2012–2013. The scholars, a third of whom will be coming from abroad, will use Ransom Center materials to support projects with such titles as "For Love and Money: Victorian Women Photographers in and Beyond the Studio," "African London," "Robert De Niro's Method: Acting, Agency, and Authorship in the New Hollywood (1967–1980)," "How to Revise a True War Story: Tim O'Brien's Fiction and the Process of Textual Production," and "Beautiful Chaos: Music, Pantomime, and Freedom in the French Enlightenment."
The fellowships support research projects in the humanities that require substantial on-site use of the Center's collections of manuscripts, rare books, film, photography, art, and performing arts materials. Applications for 2013–2014 fellowships are due February 1, 2013.
