Allison Puglisi, Assistant Professor of History, Awarded Newhouse Fellowship

Allison Puglisi, Assistant Professor of History, received a fellowship from the Suzy Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College for academic year 2024–2025 for her book project entitled “Redefining Residency: Black Environmental Thought in New Orleans.” The project will focus on how housing activists, particularly Black women, laid the groundwork for modern Black environmental organizing. During the fellowship year, Allison plans to revise her book manuscript for publication and present work in progress as part of the Center’s yearlong workshop series. The Newhouse Center is also home to Wellesley’s chapter of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF), a national program that works with 47 selected schools and three consortia and that aims to build a more diverse professoriate. As part of the fellowship—and as an MMUF alum herself—Allison also looks forward to connecting with Wellesley’s current MMUF fellows.
