Marcus W. Orr Center Awards Faculty and Dissertation Fellowships

June 23, 2015 - The University of Memphis Marcus W. Orr Center for the Humanities has announced the recipients of its Faculty and Dissertation Fellowships for spring 2016.

Faculty Fellowships were awarded to Dr. William Campbell, assistant professor in the Department of History; Dr. Donal Harris, assistant professor in the Department of English; and Dr. Catherine Phipps, associate professor in the Department of History. Dr. Sharon Stanley, associate professor in the Department of Political Science, received the Deborah L. Talbot Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Inquiry.

Dissertation Fellowships were awarded to Trenton Hagar, PhD student in the Department of English, and Desirée Ramacus-Bushnell, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Philosophy.

The Faculty and Dissertation Fellowship programs encourage and highlight outstanding research in the humanities and related disciplines at the UofM. The fellowships allow recipients to write and research in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment alongside other faculty members and doctoral students.

Showcasing the research being conducted at the UofM also strengthens ties between the University and the community, and illustrates the vital role that the humanities play in culture.
