Second Fellowship to Susanna Morrill
April 13, 2012
Susanna Morrill, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, has received a second fellowship to support her project, “Protestant Women’s Birth and Death Rituals, 1780-1920.” As the recipient of a Robert L. Platzman Memorial Fellowship, Dr. Morrill will be able to conduct archival research at the University of Chicago library, and will receive a $2,000 stipend. This program supports short-term research fellowships in the Special Collections Research Center, which includes rare books, archives, original sources, and manuscript collections. This award comes on the heels of another recent fellowship Susanna received to visit the Huntington Library; these two short-term fellowships will allow Susanna to conduct extended archival research on her project.
