Ransom Center to host more than 80 scholars
in fellowship program's 25th year
The Ransom Center will host more than 80 research fellows for 2014–2015, the 25th anniversary of the fellowship program. Since the program's inception, the Center has awarded fellowships to more than 900 scholars from around the world.
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.
The 2014–2015 fellowship recipients, more than half of whom will be coming from abroad, will use Ransom Center materials to support projects with such titles as "J. M. Coetzee and the Idea of the Literary," "Imagined Heartlands: Post-Postmodern Literature and the American Midwest," "The Films of Powell and Pressburger," "Norman Hall: Photo-Editing and International Connections in Mid-Twentieth-Century Photography," and "Dawn of a New Day: New York City Between the Fairs."
