Woodson Institute fellows announced

By Katherine Jackson

The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African and African-American Studies will introduce its 1999-2000 fellows and visiting scholars and their work Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. in Minor Hall room 225. A reception will follow in room 108. The University community and public are invited to attend.

The institute's residential research fellowships, which bring recipients from across the country, are awarded in an annual competition. The fellowships are designed to help participants complete projects leading to publication in the humanities and social sciences which focus on race, ethnicity and society in Africa and the Atlantic world.

The visiting scholars program accepts applicants interested in the field of African-American and African studies during the spring and fall.

Patricia M. Krus from the University of Leiden, Netherlands, a visiting Fulbright Scholar researching "History as Memory in Caribbean Women's Writing," is the Institute's visiting scholar for fall 1999.

The Woodson Postdoctoral Fellow is Rosanne M. Adderley, a doctoral student in history at Tulane University. She is researching "Middle Passage Voices: New Stories and Insights from the 19th-Century Slave Trade." The one-year fellowship carries a stipend of $25,000.

Another fellowship, sponsored by the President's Office, goes to Gregg Michel, a doctoral student from U.Va., researching "The Consultative Resource Center on School Desegregation at the University of Virginia, 1967-1981."

Two-year pre-doctoral fellowships, carrying $15,000 stipends, also have been awarded to four students.
