The Schallek Awards, given in collaboration with the Richard III Society – American Branch, support graduate students conducting doctoral research in any relevant discipline dealing with late-medieval Britain (ca. 1350-1500).
A clerical error led to the notification of six Schallek Awardees this year instead of the allocated five. To allow us to fund all six, two anonymous donors have generously funded a one-time British Studies Travel Award. The Awardees are:
Michelle Brooks (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), “Poeticizing the Universe: Scientific Discourse and Literary Absence in Chaucer’s ‘A Treatise on the Astrolabe'”
Gina Marie Hurley (Yale University), “Schryue yow openlye: Confession and Community in Middle English Literature”
Michaela Jacques (Harvard University), “The Reception and Transmission of the Medieval Welsh Bardic Grammars, 1330-1578”
Anna Kelner (Harvard University), “Remedies against Temptations: Vision, Ethics and Gender in Later Medieval England”
Charlotte Clare Whatley (University of Wisconsin, Madison), “No Time Runs Against the King: The Function of Fictions in the Late-Medieval English Common Law”
Hannah Wood (University of Toronto), “Intersections of Voluntary and Involuntary Poverty in Late Medieval England”
