Professor Stephanie Frampton receives Mellon Fellowship

Stephanie Frampton, Assistant Professor in Literature, has received an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Critical Bibliography through the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia for 2013-2016.

During their three-year tenure, the select group of fellows receives advanced, hands-on training in the analysis of textual artifacts, works with distinguished faculty in manuscript studies and the history of the book, and regularly attends research-oriented seminars at special collections libraries nationwide. Fellows receive additional support to organize workshops and symposia at their home institutions. Prof. Frampton is trained as a classicist and a comparatist; her research focuses on the material culture of writing in the ancient world and on other intersections between literary and cultural history in Greece and Rome.
