Faculty awarded HRI summer fellowships


The Humanities Research Institute has awarded its annual summer faculty fellowships to nine faculty members for 2023, five of whom are from the School of Literatures, Cultures & Linguistics.

These fellowships are designed to help faculty maximize the summer in service of their ongoing professional development. They provide an infusion of resources to jumpstart or fuel an ongoing research project, undertake course development, or pursue a professional training opportunity over the summer months. 

This year's fellows from the school include: 

John Levi Barnard (Comparative and World Literature), “The Edible and the Endangered: Food, Empire, Extinction” 

Eric Calderwood (Comparative and World Literature), “Babel’s Bounty: Multilingual Arts in the Mediterranean” 

Salvatore Callesano (Spanish and Portuguese), “The Comment Section: Multimodal sentiment analyses and ‘no sabo kids’ on TikTok” 

Pilar Martínez-Quiroga (Spanish and Portuguese), “The Utopia of a Feminist Nation: The Case of Catalonia” 

Anna Mendoza (Linguistics), “Language Use and Investment in a French-English Dual Immersion School”
