Keely Smith, a Ph.D. candidate from Princeton University’s Department of History, has received the David Center for the American Revolution Short-term Resident Research Fellowship at the American Philosophical Society’s Library & Museum. This fellowship honors the longstanding commitment of the David Library for the American Revolution’s support of scholarship, having awarded over 200 fellowships over the last several decades.
For the 2021-2022 year, the Society has awarded eight long-term fellowships and ten short-term fellowships, which support research in the history of science, Native American studies, and early American history.
This fellowship will allow Keely to further her project “Communicating Power and Sovereignty: Creek and Seminole Communication Networks, 1715-1880.”
