HARCS DEAN’S FELLOWS As every graduate student in the humanities knows, summers are especially tough financially. Annual stipends and instructor salaries don’t go far enough in covering costs associated with completing a creative or research project. Students need support to travel to archives, conferences and seminars, purchase materials such as canvas and clay, or cover living expenses as they write. To bridge the gap in summer support, the dean of the Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies in 2013-2014 allocated $50,000 in summer support to graduate students in Ph.D. and M.F.A. programs. The Humanities Institute awarded each fellow up to $2,500 for travel, research, workshops and other project-related work in the summer of 2013. The funding supported students in a range of programs from Performance Studies to English and will contribute to the completion of a wide array of projects, including a history of obscenity and editorship in twentieth century American literary culture, an examination of indigenous resistance to rural development in Haiti, and a performance piece that explores the relationship between bodies and sound. Below is a list of the awardees and their deserving projects.
