Fellows on Fellowships

Since the inception of its fellowship program in 1990, the Ransom Center has hosted more than 1,000 scholars as fellows. Awarded annually by the Ransom Center, the research fellowships in the humanities support scholarly projects that concentrate on the Center's collections.

Listen to fellows discuss their research, explain the process of working with primary source materials, and describe the benefits of having access to such materials.
