We recently lost one of our first IFUSS Fellows, Dr. Hazel Rowley of Australia, who was well known for her trenchant biographies of well known literary figures, including a recent works on novelist Richard Wright. We mourn her all-too-early passing, and remember the strength of her intellect and her capacious warmth and understanding of how human relationships shape literary works. For an extensive obituary in the New York Times, please see the following link.
This year’s focus is on:
Residencies, visiting lecturers, affiliations with international centers, and the International Anthropology of the U.S.
