Mulholland Named Burkhardt Fellow
NC State English professor James Mulholland will continue his research into the emergence of Anglo-Indian literature during the eighteenth century at the National Humanities Center, thanks to a Burkhardt fellowship.
Mulholland is one of 21 recently tenured professors who have been named Burkhardt Fellows for the 2016-17 academic year. The fellowships, awarded by the American Council of Learned Societies with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, include a $75,000 stipend and $5,000 research budget. Fellows participate in yearlong residencies at scholarly communities.
Mulholland’s book project, titled Anglophone Literature and the Emergence of the Colonial Public Sphere in Asia, 1774-1819, documents the rich and unique literary culture of 18th-century British India.
