In case you missed it in our last (March) newsletter, we’re pleased to announce this year’s Eileen M. Curran Fellowship winners!
These travel and research grants are intended to aid scholars of 19th-century British periodicals who wish to study primary print and archival sources. These fellowships are made possible by a generous bequest of the late Eileen Curran, Professor Emerita of English at Colby College and inspired by her pioneering research on Victorian periodicals.
Our 2022 fellows are:
- Sue Chen, “Preparing the Child for Science”: Victorian Children’s Periodicals and Scientific Literacy
- Richard Scully, The Last Victorian: Sir Bernard Partridge, Pictures, Periodicals, and Politics in Britain, 1861-1945
- Catherine Birch, Female Punch Contributors, 1868-1918
- Stéphane Sadoux, The Cheap Cottages Crusade: Rural Bylaws and the Periodical Press, 1901-1905
- Tsz Ting Yan, China, Humour, and the Opium Wars in Punch: An Intertextual Enquiry
- Julie Sorge Way, Inviting Submission: Isabella Beeton’s Journalism and Editorial Work at the Englishwoman’s Domestic Magazine, 1857-1865
