Two members of the English department faculty and a graduate student in history from Princeton have been awarded fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, which funds humanistic research.
Assistant Professor Jeff Dolven and Professor Deborah Nord of Princeton's English department were among 72 scholars selected from more than 1,000 applicants nationwide for ACLS Fellowships, which fund research projects for six months to one year.
Dolven will conduct research on romance and the English educational revolution. Nord will pursue a study of Gypsy representation in British culture.
Christine Philliou, a doctoral candidate in Princeton's history department, also was awarded one of 12 ACLS grants for research and writing of dissertations relevant to Eastern Europe. Philliou's research focuses on the logic and practices of Ottoman power from 1770 to 1860.
