VCU English Professor Receives Prestigious Fellowship

April 12, 2019

The American Council of Learned Societies has named Jennifer Rhee, Ph.D., an associate professor in the Department of English in the College of Humanities and Sciences, as a 2019 ACLS Fellow. The program supports scholars in the humanities and related social sciences who are undertaking the full-time research and writing of a major scholarly work.

Rhee, who is also a core faculty member in VCU's Media, Art, & Text Ph.D. Program, is one of 81 fellows from more than 60 colleges and universities who were selected by their peers from over 1,100 applicants in a review process with multiple stages. They were chosen for their potential to make an original and significant contribution to knowledge.

Rhee’s book project, “Counting: Cultures of Measurement, Quantification, and Surveillance,” examines technologies of quantification and their entanglements with race, alongside artistic engagements with counting.
