Professor John Lopez receives ACLS Fellowship
Congratulations to Professor John Lopez — a 2021 recipient of the ACLS (American Council of Learned Societies) Fellowship. The Fellowship will support work on his manuscript The Aquatic Metropolis: Mapping Nature and Urban Aesthetics at Viceregal Mexico City. Recipients receive funding to support six to twelve consecutive months devoted to full-time research and/or writing between July 1, 2021 and December 31, 2022.
The ACLS Fellowship Program awards fellowships to individual scholars working in the humanities and related social sciences. Given the disproportionate effect the current economic downturn has on emerging, independent, and untenured scholars, in the 2020-21 competition year the awards were designated solely for untenured scholars who have earned the PhD within the past eight years.
Institutions and individuals have contributed to the ACLS Fellowship Program and its endowment, including The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Arcadia Charitable Trust, the Council’s college and university Associates, and former Fellows and individual friends of ACLS.
