During the 2012-2013 school year, I will be a Dissertation Completion Fellow at Emory’s Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry here in Atlanta, GA. This fellowship support will allow me to complete my dissertation “From Mars to Oprah: Cryptomnesia as Hidden Memory and Unconscious Plagiarism” by early 2013.
From the FCHI mission statement:
The FCHI is a focal point for humanities endeavors at Emory University and serves to advance research and teaching, overall, in the humanities. The FCHI serves both those trained in the humanities and also others in the University who are interested in humanistic issues. The FCHI is dedicated to providing occasions and spaces for encouraging intellectual community and scholarship across disciplines.
I am so excited about this opportunity. I will be sharing writing space in a “corner office” with the other two dissertation fellows and attending lunches each Wednesday where one of the fellows will present their work. You can read more about my project and the work of the other Fellows (including fellow ILA’er Elizabeth Goodstein) here on the FCHI website.
Thank you to the Fox Center for supporting my work!
