Rita Felski, William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of English and editor of New Literary History, has been awarded a Niels Bohr Professorship from the Danish National Research Foundation. Felski is one of seven international scholars and researchers to receive the professorship, and the only recipient in the humanities. Under the terms of Felski’s professorship, she will spend her fall semesters at the University of Southern Denmark over the next five academic years. The professorship comes with a grant amounting to approximately $4.2 million in support, which will allow Felski to organize international conferences and advance her research while directing a team of professors and post-doctoral researchers at the University of Southern Denmark.
