Our 2023 Curran Fellows have been chosen! RSVP received many strong proposals for this year’s Curran Fellowship competition. The Curran Fellowships are a set of travel and research grants intended to aid scholars studying 19th-century British magazines and newspapers in making use of primary print and archival sources.
Made possible through the generosity of the late Eileen Curran, Professor Emerita of English, Colby College, and inspired by her pioneering research on Victorian periodicals, the Fellowships are awarded annually.
Join us in congratulating the successful applications of:
- Abigail Farrier, “A Pioneer Editress”: Frieda Cassin’s Complex Contributions to the 19th Century Caribbean Creole Literary World
- Abigail Clayton, Marginal Voices, Miscellaneous Fragments: Black Journalism and the Transatlantic Editing of Abolition, 1850–1860
