MLA Members Awarded ACLS Fellowships

Congratulations to the four MLA members who have been awarded 2022 American Council of Learned Societies Emerging Voices Fellowships, which support early-career scholars whose voices, perspectives, and broad visions will strengthen institutions of higher education and humanistic disciplines in the years to come. This year the program will award more than $3.7 million to support 60 scholars, many of whom are facing significant disruption to their research and career ambitions due to the widespread social and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
