M/MLA Short-term Fellowship

2011 Fellowship Recipient

The 2011 M/MLA Short-term Fellowship is Lise Jaillant from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Bristish Columbia, Canada.

During her time at the Newberry Library, Ms. Jaillant will examine the ways in which the Modern Library series contributed to Sherwood Anderson's entrance into the literary canon while he was still alive. Her research will participate in current debates on the role of publishers and uniform series in the canon-making processes. Anderson scholars have mainly favored approaches inspired by psychoanalysis, New Criticism, and biographical readings. In contrast, Jaillant's project will draw from print culture studies to shed light on Anderson's early canonization.
