The AHA is pleased to announce its 2022–23 fellows for the J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship in American History and the Fellowships in Aerospace History.
Sponsored jointly by the Library of Congress and the American Historical Association, the J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship in American History is offered each year to support significant scholarly research in the collections of the Library of Congress by scholars at an early stage in their careers in history. The 2022–23 Jameson Fellowship has been awarded to Hardeep Dhillon, who received her PhD in history from Harvard University in 2021 and is currently an ABF/NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Law & Inequality at the American Bar Foundation. Hardeep will be conducting research for her book, America’s Global Borders: Law, Migration, and the Shadows of Asian Exclusion, which seeks to illuminate the transimperial foundations of modern US immigration and border enforcement through the history of Asian American restriction and inclusion by drawing connections between Asian American, Asian, and inter-Asian histories at the turn of the 20th century.
The Fellowships in Aerospace History, awarded annually, are supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and administered by the AHA, the History of Science Society (HSS), and the Society for the History of Technology. The fellowships provide funding to scholars undertaking advanced research projects in all aspects of aerospace history, including cultural and intellectual history, economic history, the history of law and public policy, and the history of science, engineering, and management.
The 2022–23 AHA Fellowship in Aerospace History has been awarded to Caitlin Kossmann, a PhD candidate at Yale University, who will be conducting research for her dissertation, “The Myth of Gaia: Gender, Ecology, and Community in the Making of Earth System Science.”
The 2022–23 AHA Fellowship in the History of Space Technology has been awarded to Jorden Pitt, a PhD candidate at Texas Christian University, to work on his dissertation, “The Traumatic Blue Sky: The Psychological Consequences of Aerial Combat in the Twentieth Century.”
The 2022–23 HSS Fellowship in Aerospace History has been awarded to Adelaide Mandeville, a PhD candidate at Harvard University, who will be working on her project, “Changes in the Sky: The Rise and Fall of Weather Control in the Twentieth-Century United States.”
Congratulations to these scholars for receiving these prestigious fellowships!
