Rose Stremlau – George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation Fellowship
Associate Professor of History, Rose Stremlau has received a highly competitive George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation Fellowship in support of her book project, Barbara Hildebrand Longknife: A Cherokee Life in the Age of American Empire.
The $35,000 award will afford Professor Stremlau time to complete her manuscript which is under contract with UNC Press. Drawing on letters from Longknife to her family in the Cherokee Nation, Professor Stremlau tells the story of an indigenous woman’s journey across the country, and her experiences under U. S. Indian policy during the 1800s.
The Howard Foundation targets its support specifically to early mid-career individuals who have completed at least one major project and demonstrate potential to be future leaders in their fields. We congratulate Professor Stremlau on this prestigious fellowship and look forward to her publication. Read more about Professor Stremlau’s funded research projects here.
