Congratulations to Julie Powell who has won a Presidential Fellowship. The Graduate School states that the "Presidential Fellowships recognize outstanding scholarly accomplishments and potential of graduate students entering the final phase of their dissertation research or terminal degree project. They provide financial support so the fellow may devote one year of full-time study to the completion of the dissertation or degree project unimpeded by other duties. Recipients of this award embody the highest standards of scholarship in our graduate programs."
Her dissertation, “The Labor Army of Tomorrow: Masculinity and the Internationalization of Veterans’ Rehabilitation, 1914-1924,” talks about different veterans’ rehabilitation programs during WWI and how these programs affected things like the development of prosthetic devices, and, ultimately, things like workers’ rights, attitudes towards industrial accidents, and even geopolitical consequences.
Julie's advisors are Alice Conklin and Bruno Cabanes.
