Robert Moore awarded fellowships

Doctoral student Rob Moore has accepted a Chateaubriand Fellowship, a grant offered by the Embassy of France in the United States. It supports outstanding Ph.D. students from American universities who wish to conduct research in France for a period ranging from 4 to 9 months. Chateaubriand fellows are selected through a merit-based competition through a collaborative process involving expert evaluators in both countries.

Rob will be funded for the academic year. He’ll be working with Tiphaine Samoyault, Director of the Centre d’Études et de Recherches Comparatistes at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris.

Rob was also awarded a Confucius Institute grant that would have given him a year-long stay at a prestigious academic institution in the PRC, namely Nankai University in Tianjin. The process for that fellowship is also merit-based, and included a videoconference interview on Rob’s research that was conducted in Chinese.
