Timothy Miller, a Ph.D. student in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters, was awarded a Mellon Foundation/American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Dissertation Completion Fellowship for the 2013-14 academic year.
Miller is the third graduate student in the University’s Department of English to receive the prestigious honor in the last four years. ACLS awards only 65 fellowships nationwide each year.
“Tim is the latest of a series of stellar doctoral students in English to win national dissertation fellowships,” says Professor Valerie Sayers, chair of the Department of English. “Tim’s work on Chaucer is highly original, and his professors characterize him as both meticulous and innovative, especially in his use of digital tools.
“His prestigious fellowship is a testament to his broad-ranging creativity and diligence, as well as an affirmation of our graduate program in general and our medieval program in particular.”
