Barrenechea Receives Research Fellowship

Antonio Barrenechea, Professor of English, was recently awarded the 2022-2023 Reese Fellowship in American Bibliography and History of the Book in the Americas, from the Bancroft Library, University of California at Berkeley. His project “One Hemisphere Many Nations: Boltonian Americanism and Literary Historiography” will explore the Herbert Bolton archive in relation to the emergence of literary pan-Americanism in the lead-up to World War II. The full project will entail working with rare, untranslated, and out-of-print scholarly books forming the early Literature of the Americas academic field.
