Texas A&M University’s Arts & Humanities Fellows Program presents its third showcase of animated shorts to explore the outstanding scholarship and creativity of the program’s Class of 2017. The videos feature six A&M faculty members who recently completed their three-year fellowships.

The program is funded by the Division of Research.

Each animated short describes a research or creative project supported by a three-year grant of $15,000 from the Arts & Humanities Fellows Program. Recognized for their creativity and scholarly value, these projects were the third to receive funding from the program.

The program previously released animated shorts for the classes of 2015 and 2016.

This series of animated shorts, produced by Research Communications and Public Relations, features the following Arts & Humanities Fellows and their funded projects:

Ira Dworkin, assistant professor in the Department of English, researched a noted Nigerian who explored U.S. citizenship from the perspective of an African Muslim immigrant.

Angela P. Hudson, associate professor in the Department of History, studied the success of 19th century practitioners known as “Indian doctresses” to demonstrate how stereotypes pervade American life.
