Allison Madar Awarded Kluge Fellowship
Allison Madar, assistant professor of History at the University of Oregon, has been recently been awarded the 2020 Kluge Fellowship at the Library of Congress.
The John W. Kluge Center was established by the Library of Congress to encourage humanistic and social science research. Twelve fellowships are awarded each year to select scholars “with special consideration given to those whose projects demonstrate relevance to contemporary challenges,” according to the Kluge Center website.
Allison Madar is a historian of early America and the early modern Atlantic world. She will use her fellowship to research and write a book that examines the legal and social dynamics of servitude in 18th century Virginia.
