Congratulations to SFU English SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship Winners

May 13, 2021

The Department of English congratulates Rawia Inaim, Linara Kolosov, and Scott Russell on their Doctoral Fellowships. All three students are working on exciting projects.

Rawia's project is "Enjoy your Conflict: A Symptomatic Reading of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict" and she is working on it with Professors Clint Burnham and Jon Smith.

Linara's work is focused on "Publishing Authors' Lives: The Early History of Life Writings in Print" and she working on it with Professor Betty Schellenberg.

Scott, who has the added honour of being awarded a Joseph-Armand Bombardier CGS Doctoral Scholarship, is working with Professor David Coley on his project, "The Wild Without: Insanity as Bontanical Being in Medieval Literature."

SFU English would like to thank the students' mentors, letter writers, faculty, and staff who supported them during grant season last fall. Also, thanks to the entire graduate student cohort, for the collegiality, generosity, and rigor with which they support each other.

The SSHRC Doctoral Fellowships support high-calibre students engaged in doctoral programs in the social sciences and humanities. This support allows scholars to fully focus on their doctoral studies, to seek out the best research mentors in their chosen fields and to contribute to the Canadian research ecosystem during and beyond the tenure of their awards.
