Historians among 2011 ACLS Fellows and Grant Winners
The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) announced its 2011 fellows and grantees today, Tuesday, May 31st. Almost $15 million is being awarded to the 350 scholars, of which there are numerous historians. ACLS fellowships and grants are awarded to individual scholars for excellence in research in the humanities and related social sciences. This year’s projects span a wide range of topics and time periods, from a “Mapping Antislavery geospatial database” project, to a “history of obligation and economic life in the Western Indian Ocean,” to a look at the “impact of electric light on American culture.”
