Dr. Lisa Jackson-Schebetta, who earned her PhD in Theatre History, Theory and Criticism from the University of Washington in 2010, was awarded a 2014-15 Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship from the American Association of University Women (AAUW). She will use her fellowship to support full time work on her monograph, “Son tus huellas el camino: The Spanish Civil War and the De-colonial Imagination in the Americas.” AAUW's fellowships support women scholars who are completing doctoral dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research, or finishing research for publication.
“I was thrilled and humbled to learn I had been awarded an AAUW Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship,” says Dr. Jackson-Schebetta. “It is a great honor to be in the company of so many remarkable women.”
Dr. Jackson-Schebetta is an assistant professor in Theatre Arts at the University of Pittsburgh, as well as affiliated faculty with the Center for Latin American Studies, the Global Studies Center, the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies program, and Cultural Studies. Her scholarly work has been published in Theatre History Studies, New England Theatre Journal, Modern Drama, The Journal of American Drama and Theatre and others.
