Samford University history professor Dr. Ginger Frost has received a residential fellowship to study at the National Humanities Center at Triangle Park, N.C., during 2002-03.

The $24,000 fellowship will support her work on a book-length study of cohabitation in 19th Century England. The selection committee considered 474 applications for 35 fellowships. Frost is the first recipient from Alabama in 25 years.

Frost's research explores the gender, class and generational tensions within such families, and their social and cultural meanings.

Frost has been a member of the Samford faculty since 1996.
