Allie Richardson ’20 has been awarded a Fulbright Study/Research Grant to conduct research on late medieval Germany at the University of Trier in 2021. Richardson, who lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA, has a dual major in history and German.
“The Fulbright experience will surely be a transformative moment in Allie’s life and future career,” says Professor of History Simon Doubleday, who has advised Richardson’s research on the social and political struggles of 13th century Strasbourg. “She is an exceptionally accomplished, self-motivated, and articulate student, with excellent language skills in modern German. She has been able to put these skills to good use in her research, while also wrestling with the unique challenges of reading original medieval texts in Middle High German.”
