VII. Briefly describe your research interests, including a tentative plan for your dissertation project. (Attach additional sheet if necessary)
My research interest lies in the genre of Southern Literature. I believe that Southern Literature is much more rich and complex than is often ascribed, and should be examined as such. Too often, it is labeled as a type of regionalism, its tropes and topics listed off as on a checklist. Southern Literature and its authors embody much more than a subgenre of regionalist literature. I hope to further my research and studies into the nuances and intricacies of such literature. I have spent much of my research focusing on Anne Tyler as a southern writer, but I would like to widen my perspective a bit and perhaps find another author with which to compare their works, similarities, and methods within the scope of Southern literature. This is ultimately the direction I wish to take my dissertation in.

VIII. CERTIFICATION I certify the information provided on this application is true and complete. I will use the fellowship funds for educational purposes only.
