Congratulations to doctoral candidate Sam Sumpter on being selected as the Alvord Fellow in the Humanities for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Alvord Fellowship is the College of Arts and Sciences' most prestigious graduate student award in the Humanities. Additionally, the College has awarded Sam a scholarship from the Frank L. and Catherine D. Doleshy Endowed Fund. Together, these two awards provide a full year of funding to support intensive dissertation work.
Sam's dissertation is titled "Constructing and Being Constructed: Relational Trans Identity and Responsibility for Microaggressions."
We look forward to the development of this project!
Edit: Sam will also be joining the Simpson Center's Society of Scholars for 2018-2019. Read the Simpson Center's announcement.
