The American Philosophical Society’s Library & Museum announces its latest round of fellowship recipients.
The American Philosophical Society’s Library & Museum is excited to announce that Rebecca Jackson, a graduate student from the University of Indiana, Bloomington’s Department of History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, has received the John C. Slater Predoctoral Fellowship. This fellowship serves to advance Ph.D. students studying topics related to the history of science, technology, and medicine.
This fellowship will allow Rebecca to further her project “Measuring Well: Clinical Measuring Practices and Philosophy of Measurement”
We look forward to working with Rebecca and learning more about her research efforts. As the Society's Librarian Patrick Spero said, “Every year, we look forward to welcoming fellows to the Library & Museum. Due to the pandemic, many of our 2020-2021 fellows had to work remotely, so we’re especially excited to be able to host fellows onsite once again. Fellows and their scholarship form the core of the intellectual community at the library, and we are thrilled to get back to what we do best: advance knowledge through the support of original research.”
