Shannon Withycombe Named ACLS New Faculty Fellow

March 2011


Recent graduate Shannon Withycombe has been named a New Faculty Fellow by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and will join the History department at Duke University for the academic years 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. This fellowship program allows recent Ph.D.s in the humanities to take up two-year positions with an American university or college where their particular research and teaching expertise augment departmental offerings.

Shannon received her Ph.D. in 2010 with a dissertation titled Slipped Away: Pregnancy Loss in Nineteenth-Century America. We wish her well in this new position.
