The IAAS is delighted to announce the winner of the 2016 Dartmouth Summer Institute Scholarship

The Clinton Institute for American Studies at University College Dublin established a scholarship this year to send one postgraduate student from the island of Ireland to the Futures of American Studies Summer Institute at Dartmouth College this June. Applicants had to be registered members of the IAAS in order to apply for the scholarship which covers return flights to Boston, transfers to Dartmouth, and the full registration fee for the week.

After deliberating on a remarkably strong field of applicants, it was eventually decided to award the scholarship to Katrina Kelly of Queen’s University Belfast. Katrina is a PhD student in the School of English and her project explores how post-9/11 fiction narrates and interrogates the exercise of US power within and outside its borders, in response to threats and crises which compromise national security. The IAAS and the Clinton Institute congratulates Katrina on this award and wishes her every success in Dartmouth this summer.
