The AHRC provides residential fellowships to doctoral students and early-career researchers from the United Kingdom to study at international libraries and research institutions. The Ransom Center is one of seven host institutions, including China’s Shanghai Theatre Academy, the Huntington Library, Japan’s National Institutes for the Humanities, Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Yale Center for British Art.

Joe Rollins, a first-year Ph.D. researcher in the Department of English at the University of York, shares his proposed research at the Ransom Center.

The AHRC’s program provides scholars with access to renowned research collections and expertise; enhances the depth, range, and quality of research activities; and enables networking with other international scholars.

The AHRC recently announced the names of this year’s fellowship recipients, including five academics who will conduct research at the Ransom Center for residences of two or three months.

These individuals will join more than 75 scholars who will visit the Ransom Center in the coming year as part of its 2016-2017 fellowship program.
