Pam Wojcik 1200

Carrie Gates | May 9, 2020

Pamela Wojcik, a professor in the Department of Film, Television and Theatre at the University of Notre Dame, has been awarded a 2020 fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in support of her book project, "Unhomed: Mobility and Placelessness in American Cinema."

Wojcik is among 175 scholars, artists and scientists to be awarded fellowships this year from a pool of nearly 3,000 applicants. Faculty in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters have won 18 Guggenheim fellowships in the last 20 years. 

“I’m thrilled that Pam has received one of the world’s most prestigious and competitive fellowships,” said Sarah Mustillo, the I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters. “This award is a strong endorsement of the quality of her research and continues our tradition of excellence with these awards.”

Wojcik, who will begin serving as chair of FTT in July, said she is honored to receive the fellowship, particularly because her colleague Donald Crafton, the Joseph and Elizabeth Robbie Professor Emeritus of Film, Television and Theatre, also won a fellowship in 2014.
