2015 NASA and Jameson Fellowships Awarded

Dana Schaffer | May 19, 2015

The AHA is pleased to announce the 2015–16 recipients of the J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship in American History and the Fellowship in Aerospace History.

Sponsored jointly by the Library of Congress and the American Historical Association, the J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship in American History is offered each year to support significant scholarly research in the collections of the Library of Congress by scholars at an early stage in their careers in history. The Jameson Fellowship review committee has recently selected Wendy H. Wong, research associate at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, as the recipient of the 2015–16 fellowship for her project, “Diplomatic Subtleties and Frank Overtures: Print Publicity, Neutrality, and the Politics of Slavery, 1793–1801.”

Each year the Fellowship in Aerospace History—supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and administered by the AHA—funds projects that undertake advanced research in all aspects of aerospace history, from the earliest human interest in flight to the present, including cultural and intellectual history, economic history, history of law and public policy, and history of science, engineering, and management. The 2015–16 fellowship in Aerospace History has been awarded to Colleen Anderson, PhD candidate in the Department of History at Harvard University, for her project “‘Two Kinds of Infinity’: East Germany, West Germany, and the Cold War Cosmos.”

Congratulations to Wendy and Colleen for their successful proposals.
