Ben Saunders received the RIGE Completion Fellowship, which provides scholars with time to finish the final stages of a project intended for publication, for Aliens, Monsters & Madman: The Achievement of EC Comics (Spring).

Gordon M. Sayre was awarded the Provost’s Senior Humanist Fellowship for Climate, Species, and Extinction in Early American (Winter).

Elizabeth Wheeler received a faculty research fellowship for HandiLand: Disability in U.S. Young Adult and Children’s Literature (Fall or Spring).

OHC Faculty Research Fellowships are designed to “encourage, support, and disseminate important humanistic research” by UO tenure-related faculty. OHC Faculty Fellows are funded for one term to conduct research full time and present those findings through public presentations and Humanities Center Work-in-Progress talks.

Daniel Wojcik received the Coleman-Guitteau Teaching Professorship for his course FLR 410/510 Visionary Experiences & Otherworldly Encounters: Traditions, Theories, and Contexts (Winter or Spring)

OHC Faculty Teaching Fellowships support the development of a new undergraduate humanities course.
