Roger Daniels Summer Fellowship

First-year doctoral student Alyssa McClanahan has been awarded the fifth annual Roger Daniels Summer Fellowship.  McClanahan will continue her research of anti-nuclear feminists in the 1980s, exploring an online archive from the Seneca Women’s Encampment for a Future of Peace and Justice ( Featuring countless oral interviews, photographs, songs and stories, this source details how anti-nuclear feminists lived at this peace camp near Seneca Falls, New York, beginning in 1981. Protesting the deployment of Cruise and Pershing II missiles from the nearby Seneca Army Depot to Europe, the camp, set up a mile-and-a-half from the depot, organized numerous anti-missile rallies and acts of civil disobedience at its gates.  The Daniels Fellowship provides $1,500 to support McClanahan’s research over the summer.
