The Ohio University Research Committee has selected four faculty proposals, including Dr. Kathleen Sullivan, for funding during its fall 2018 cycle. In total, the committee awarded $26,462.

Sullivan, Associate Professor of Political Science and Faculty Affiliate of the Center for Law, Justice & Culture, received $3,703 for her project on “The Protection of Seaman, 1789-1915.” She will visit the city archives and the National Archives in Boston to study the treatment of sailors who were taken advantage of by boardinghouse keepers in the 19th century. She will also attend a GIS workshop with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute to map the locations of Boston boardinghouse, hotel, and liquor licenses.

The program, which is funded by the Vice President for Research and Creative Activity, provides seed money for new faculty and administrative staff members or established applicants seeking to start a new direction in their research. Applicants may request up to $8,000 per proposal. The committee received a total of 15 proposals requesting $110,683 in funding.
