It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Lancaster History's Professor Naomi Tadmor, has been awarded the Fletcher Jones Distinguished Fellowship at the Huntington Library for 2018/19. This prestigious Fellowship is offered each year to a specialist in British and or English History or Literature.


The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens has one of the largest and most complete research libraries in the United States specialising in the fields of British and American history and literature. Through a rigorous peer-review program, the Huntington awards approximately 200 fellowships each year to scholars in the fields of history, literature, art, and the history of science. The Fletcher Jones Distinguished Fellowship, to be held by Professor Naomi Tadmor in 2018/19, is one of a small number of endowed positions for senior scholars, traditionally offered to a leading specialist in English and/or British history or literature.

The Huntington is partnered with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) through its Division of Humanities and Social Sciences. It hosts a programme of research seminars and public lectures, delivered by Fellows, and has established a centre to support research on societies between 1450 and 1850 with the University of Southern California.
