3 Ph.D. Students Receive New Documentary Studies Fellowships

Three Duke Ph.D. students have earned one- and two-semester fellowships from the Center for Documentary Studies. These fellowships replace departmental funding, allowing recipients to forego RA and TA assignments and focus on dissertation-related research.

Jobie Hill, a Ph.D. student in the History Department, has earned a fellowship for the 2023-2024 academic year to support her "Pharsalia Plantation Co-Stewardship Project."

Meanwhile, two Ph.D. students in the Department of Romance Studies have been awarded fellowships for the spring semester:

  • Jessica Doyle, for her project "Extractions: Ecomedia Events in the Amazon"
  • Sam Hunnicutt, for his project "Indigenous Revision: Media Technologies and Representation in Late-20th Century Mesoamerica"

Congratulations to these three doctoral students!
