The Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia announces the winners of its tenth round of Battestin Fellowships. These fellowships are named in honor of Martin Battestin, a former distinguished professor of English at UVA, and his wife Ruthe, a literary scholar and member of the Society’s Council. The aim of the fellowships is to provide summer support for research by UVA graduate students who are working on bibliographical or textual projects. This year four fellowships, each amounting to $3500, have been awarded.
The winners and the titles of their projects are as follows:
- Molly Kathryn Kluever, “A Particular ‘Prick of Conscience’: UVA MMS E and Its Place in the Textual History of the Middle English Poem”
