Thanks to the BAA Fellowship, I was able to attend Duke University as a visiting scholar from September 2022 to October 2022. My research stay was highly beneficial and enriching both for my dissertation project and as a new cultural experience. Due to the great support of the library staff at Duke, I found plenty of additional literary sources for my research project. Apart from the great benefits for my research, I was very happy to experience the Southern culture of the United States. Overall, my research stay was a great experience and I would definitely recommend applying for the fellowship.
