Congratulations to WGST affiliate Stacie McCormick (English) who was just awarded a Woodrow Wilson fellowship for AY 2017-18! The Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellowship Program seeks to increase the presence of minority junior faculty members and other faculty members committed to eradicating racial disparities in core fields in the arts and humanities. The Fellowship, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, supports the Mellon Foundation’s mission to strengthen, promote, and, where necessary, defend the contributions of the humanities and the arts to human flourishing and to the well-being of diverse and democratic societies. The Fellowship, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, provides each Fellow with a one-year sabbatical grant; a research, travel, or publication stipend; and participation in an annual conference/retreat. A total of 30 Fellowships are awarded each year. Stacie’s research primarily focuses on contemporary African American women’s drama and its engagement with the history of slavery.
