2024 Tremaine Fellowship awarded

The members of the Fellowships Committee are very pleased to announce that Kristin Moriah has been awarded the Marie Tremaine Fellowship for 2024.

Kristin Moriah is an Assistant Professor in the English Department at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She is the editor of Insensible of Boundaries: Studies in Mary Ann Shadd Cary, the first collection of scholarly essays about radical Black feminist editor and activist Mary Ann Shadd Cary (Pennsylvania Press 2025).

Her project, “Breaking Loose”: Black Self-Publishing in Ontario,” is structured by the understanding that self-published books by Black writers are crucial to our understanding of the depth and breadth of Black print culture, and Black life, in Canada. The Tremaine Fellowship will help her to visit Black cultural centers and museums in Ontario to examine their holdings of self-published Black books and create a critical bibliography of Black self-published books in Ontario. She will draw on methods of Descriptive Bibliography and Textual Bibliography to analyze descriptions, images, illustrations, and themes in Black Canadian books that affirm the centrality of self-publishing as a form of self-determination to freedom discourses
