I received word yesterday that my application for a Fulbright Distinguished Chair of the Humanities position at the University of Manchester, England, has been recommended for funding!
The next step is for the folks in the U.K. to determine whether they have enough funding to provide grants to all applicants, and it gets more selective from there. If funded, I’ll be in England next spring, teaching in the American Studies department and interviewing Manchester residents about their media use.
The first round, which I passed, is a thorough peer review of my application and proposal for next year. I’m grateful my peers think my project is worthy of funding.
Now, on to the next!
