Rachel Carson Fellowship

(7 November 2013)  I have been awarded a Carson Writing Fellowship for 2014 at the Rachel Carson Centre for Environment and Society at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich.  This is a personal award and will allow me to spend 5 months from April-September 2014 as a Fellow of the Center.  The Rachel Carson Center is part of a funding scheme launched by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) that was devised to internationalize the humanities in Germany.  Carson Fellows are expected to work in residence on a major research project that pertains to one or more of the Center’s research themes.
