Gregory Mitchell, associate professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies, was named a Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellow. The fellowship provides a $95,000 stipend and a $7,500 research budget and will allow Mitchell to spend the upcoming academic year at Princeton University to work on his book project, tentatively titled 40,000 Missing Girls: Moral Panics, Global Sporting Events, and the Spectacle of Sex Trafficking.

W. Anthony Sheppard, the Marylin and Arthur Levitt Professor of Music, was named a Susan McClary and Robert Walser Fellow in Music Studies. He will receive funding to support six to 12 months of full-time research and writing. His project, “The Performer’s Voice: Timbre and Expression in 20th-century Vocal Music,” investigates how European and U.S. composers and performers of vocal music wielded timbre as a tool of expression.
