Thursday, April 16, 1998

FORT COLLINS--Ruth M. Alexander, associate professor of history at Colorado State University, has been awarded a research fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Alexander will spend the 1998-99 academic year conducting research in Cambridge, Mass., for her new book tentatively titled "Circling the Globe: American Women's Quest to Define U.S. Internationalism, 1900-1965."

The book will deal with American women's quest for public and political power and explore women's impact on the United States' efforts to forge a global identity. She will research how women's involvement in voluntary organizations has shaped international politics.

Alexander will conduct much of her research at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Radcliffe and will also be affiliated with the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard.
