Art History Alumna Named 2022 ACLS Emerging Voices Fellow

Kaylee P. Alexander

Kaylee P. Alexander, a Duke Ph.D. graduate in art, art history and visual studies, has been named an Emerging Voices Fellow by the American Council of Learned Societies.

Alexander is one of 40 recipients for 2022, the third and final cohort of the fellowship program. She received her Ph.D. in 2021 and is currently a research associate at Duke. Her dissertation examined funerary monuments, consumerism, and social reform in Paris during the Napoleonic era.

The ACLS launched the Emerging Voices Fellowship program in 2020 to support early-career scholars in the humanities and interpretive social sciences as the pandemic exacerbated challenges in the academic job market. The fellowship allows recipients to take up positions with members of the ACLS Research University Consortium. The 2022 recipients will receive two-year residential fellowships, with a stipend, benefits, relocation allowances, and discretionary funding.

With her ACLS fellowship, Alexander will join the University of Utah as the Digital Matters Laboratory Postdoctoral Fellow. Another of this year’s recipients, Sharon Kunde, will be coming to Duke as a postdoctoral fellow.
