RSVP announces first winners of Field Development and Peterson grants

RSVP is very pleased to announce the first winners of the RSVP Field Development Grant and the Linda H. Peterson Fellowship, both made possible by a generous bequest to RSVP by the late Eileen Curran, pioneering researcher and Emerita Professor of English at Colby College.

The winners of the Field Development Grant are Francesca Benatti and David King of The Open University for their project, “A question of style: individual voices and corporate identity in the Edinburgh Review, 1814-20”.

The winner of the Linda H. Peterson Fellowship is Tom Mole, Reader in English Literature and Director of the Centre for the History of the Book at the University of Edinburgh, for his project: “Periodicals and the Policing of Culture, 1802-1828”.

See the abstracts of these projects and learn more about these grants in Grants and Prizes on the RSVP website.
