I'm incredibly grateful to have been named a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow. I'll be completing a book on the once-celebrated, now largely forgotten sister novelists, Jane and Anna Maria Porter, during my fellowship year. Hear more about that project on the WhatsHerName podcast and in this two-minute ASU video, which accompanies the print story ASU did to publicize my award. So grateful for all ASU does to get the word out there about its faculty's research accomplishments.
I can't quite believe it's true. I've been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for my book-in-progress on the once-celebrated and now-forgotten sister novelists, Jane and Anna Maria Porter. It's the only fellowship awarded this year in the category for English literature! To be among this group of fellows is stunning and humbling. I owe a huge thanks to so many mentors, supporters, and colleagues who were there every step of the way. https://www.gf.org/…/2018/04/Nominations-By-Field-US2018.pdf
