Michael Allan Awarded Petrone Fellowship


Michael Allan has been appointed as a David. M and Nancy L. Petrone Faculty Scholar. The award is given to individuals whose achievements in research and teaching are highly valued at the UO and who personify the mission of teaching, research, and service to the University community. The fellowship, which includes a substantial stipend, is renewable for up to three years. The appointment comes in the wake of Michael’s promotion to the rank of Associate Professor with indefinite tenure, effective September 2016. This well-deserved promotion crowns a year that saw the publication of his book, In the Shadow of World Literature: Sites of Reading in Colonial Egypt (Princeton University Press, 2016). Michael will be on sabbatical for academic year 2016-2017, working on his new project, which is tentatively titled Picturing the World: The Global Routes of Early Cinema.
