Nathan A. Daniels of The Johns Hopkins University will receive the Medieval Academy of America’s 2014 Baldwin Fellowship. He is working with Prof. Gabrielle Spiegel on a dissertation entitled “Crafting Society: Guild Organization and Urban Life in Paris, 1292-1350.” Mr. Daniels will spend his Baldwin Fellowship year in Paris studying guild records and tax rolls at the Archives nationales and the Bibliothèque nationale.
The Birgit Baldwin Fellowship in French Medieval History was established in 2004 by John W. Baldwin and Jenny Jochens in memory of their daughter Birgit. It is endowed through the generosity of her family. The Fellowship provides a grant of $20,000 to support a graduate student in a North American university who is researching and writing a significant dissertation for the Ph.D. on any subject in French medieval history that can be realized only by sustained research in the archives and libraries of France. The Fellowship carries with it the possibility of renewal for a second year.
The members of the Baldwin Committee in 2013-14 were Constance Bouchard, Chair (University of Akron), Adam Davis (Denison University), and Richard Barton (University of North Carolina, Greensboro).
