Allison Neal
June 26, 2017

Congratulations to Allison Neal, the 2017 recipient of the Institute's Underhill Graduate Fellowship.

Neal is a Ph.D. candidate in English whose research focuses on Anglo-American speech-based poetry composed between 1900 and 1975. By examining how various British and American cultural and governmental institutions sought to consolidate and spread a representative English-speaking voice both domestically and abroad, this project suggests a new approach to the story of 20th Century English language poetry.

The R. Kirk Underhill Graduate Fellowship provides $30,000 to a UC Berkeley graduate student who has advanced to candidacy and whose research focuses on Anglo-American affairs. 

The Underhill Fellowship is sponsored by the Anglo-American Studies Program at IGS.
