The Department of History congratulates two graduate students, Tara Keegan and Hayley Brazier, for winning prestigious and competitive fellowships to help support their dissertation research.

Tara Keegan has won a Winter 2021 Oregon Humanities Center Dissertation Fellowship for her work on “Running the Redwood Empire: Indigeneity, Modernity, and a 480-Mile Footrace.” This fellowship seeks to provide doctoral students in humanities with the support to work full-time on their dissertations.

Hayley Brazier will be a 2020-21 Center for Environmental Futures/Andrew W. Mellon Dissertation Fellow for her work on “The Seafloor and Society: Technological Innovation on the Pacific Seabed Transformation of North America,” which has been featured in Around the O. This fellowship, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is awarded to only two University of Oregon graduate students working in the field of Environmental Humanities.
