Congratulations to the Following StudentsJim Beatty, winner of the nationally competitive Shear/Mellon Undergraduate, coordinated by the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He was one of nine fellows selected for this award for 2007. Jim's project, titled "Interpreting the Shawnee Sun," is a collaboration with a Shawnee elder, George Blanchard. They will translate existing copies of the Shawnee Sun, a newspaper printed by Baptist missionaries in the Shawnee language between 1834 and 1836. They will use the translations to analyze Shawnee relations with missionaries during this period. For more information on this fellowship, please see the SHEAR/Mellon web site.
