Dresher Center Summer Faculty Fellows 2010

The decision has now been made about the 2010 Dresher Center Summer Faculty
Fellowships.* We received a number of excellent applications, but we could only
fund three. Funding for these awards comes from the Dresher Center for the
Humanities, the CAHSS Dean's Office and the Office of the Vice President for
Research. The three Fellows and the topics for which they will be applying for
external funding are:

Gloria Chuku (Africana Studies): "Confronting the Silences: Gender, Ethnicity and
the Biafra-Nigeria War"

Piotr Gwiazda (English): "Translation of Kopenhaga by Grzegorz Wroblewski"

Nicole King (American Studies): "Community Development Corporations and a Center
for Community Studies in Baltimore"

Please join me in congratulating these Fellows.

*DC Summer Faculty Fellows receive monetary support ($5000) during the summer to
help them complete preliminary humanities research in order to be able to refine
external grant/fellowship proposals, which will be submitted in the coming year.
After the draft proposal is completed (by the end of the summer), the Dresher
Center will provide constructive criticism of the narrative proposal for
revision purposes.
