Cece Conway Appointed Alan Lomax Fellow with the John W. Kluge Center

In 2014, Cece Conway, a professor of the English department, received the Librarian of Congress appointment as the Alan Lomax Fellow with the John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress.  She now currently serves as a scholar in residence at the center pursuing advanced research on her project, "Musical Crossroads."  The residential fellowship, an eight-month fellowship, is designed for intensive research in the Library's collections, especially the Alan Lomax (1915-2002) extensive collections.  The Lomax Collection is a major collection of ethnographic field audio recordings, motion pictures, photographs, manuscripts, correspondence and other materials that represent Lomax's lifetime of work to document and analyze traditional music, dance, storytelling and other expressive genres that arise from cultural groups in many parts of the world, particularly the United States, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and the Caribbean.
