The Department of History prides itself on being a center that some of the brightest historians of the future choose to call home, and it is always such great news when they are recognized for their abilities. Recently, two of our graduate students were awarded prestigious fellowships for their research.
Jessica Bachman, whose work focuses on the historical relationship between the Soviet Untion and India, was awarded the American Council's Title VIII Research Scholar Program's Advanced Research Fellowship for 2019.
Xiaoshun Zeng, who is currently completing his dissertation on "Diagnosing Minorities: Ethnic Hygiene and Nation State Building in the Early People's Republic of China, 1949-64,' was awarded a two-quarter term to The Simpson Center Society of Fellows for next year.
Congratulations to them both!
