Ph.D. Candidate in History, Bridget Keown recently was awarded the Larkin Fellowship from the American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS).
The ACIS writes:
A pioneering historian, inspiring teacher and one of the founders of the American Conference for Irish Studies, Professor Emmet Larkin (1927-2012) was truly one of the twentieth century’s giants of Irish historical studies. To honor his memory, ACIS and Dr. Larkin’s friends and family, with support from the Georges Lurcy Charitable and Educational Trust, have created the Emmet Larkin Fellowship, an annual research award of $700 to be given to a Ph.D. student conducting work in history or the social sciences on an Irish topic (diaspora included) at a North American institution.
