MAA News – Good News From Our Members

Esther Liberman Cuenca (University of Houston-Victoria) has received the Andrew W. Mellon Junior Faculty Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study for the 2022-23 academic year, as well as the Franklin Research Grant from the American Philosophical Society.

Charlene M. Eska has been awarded a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship to support her work on a critical edition and translation of Dubhaltach Mac Fhirbhisigh’s seventeenth-century legal glossary. This glossary, which is partially based on versions of legal texts no longer extant, provides us with some insight into an otherwise lost world of medieval Irish legal scholarship.

Carolyn J. Quijano (Columbia Univ.) has been awarded a Rome Prize in Medieval Studies from the American Academy in Rome.

Several MAA members have recently been awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities:

Amanda Luyster (College of the Holy Cross) has received a grant in support of the exhibition, “The Crusades and the Chertsey Combat Tiles: A Medieval Masterpiece Reconstructed.”

NEH Summer stipends have been awarded to:

Anne Heath (Hope College), “The Holy Tear of Christ: Visual and Performance Culture at the Benedictine Abbey of La Trinité, Vendôme, c. 1150-1550”

Anna Harrison (Loyola Marymount University), “Paradox and Love in the Thought of Bernard of Clairvaux (1090–1153)”

James Blasina (Swarthmore College), “Gender, Nation, and Empire in Music for St. Katherine of Alexandria, 1050-1400”
