Director Barbie Zelizer has been named a 2018 ACLS Fellow for her research project How the Cold War Drives the News.
For this competition, ACLS increased the number of awards to 78—the greatest number in the history of the program, which has been supporting scholars across the humanities and humanistic social sciences for more than five decades. The expansion of the program allows ACLS to support fellows who are even more broadly representative of the variety of humanistic scholarship across all fields of study, and who reflect a diverse and inclusive ideal of academic excellence.
Peer reviewers selected the fellows from a pool of nearly 1,150 applicants. Awards range from $40,000 to $70,000, depending on the scholar’s career stage, and support scholars for six to twelve months of full-time research and writing.
