Yasmin Solomonescu, an assistant professor in Notre Dame’s Department of English, was recently awarded a residential fellowship at the National Humanities Center (NHC).
The NHC is a leading independent institute for advanced study dedicated to the humanities. The North Carolina-based center selects 40 fellows annually from a pool of more than 500 applicants from around the world.
During her yearlong fellowship, Solomonescu will work on Romantic Persuasions, a book project that investigates theories and practices of persuasion in British novels, poetry, and plays from roughly 1770-1840.
