Professor Mónica Domínguez Torres is a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress in 2008-2009 for her project "Armorials of the Anahuac: The production, regulation, and consumption of indigenous heraldy in 16th-century Mexico."
Selected in its sixth full year of operation, the John W. Kluge Center continues to attract the world’s brightest minds to the Library of Congress where they pursue humanistic and social science research making use of the Library's large, varied collections and expert staff. While in residence, they also have the opportunity to interact with the Washington, D.C. diplomatic community as well as each other.
Kluge Fellowship recipients, all of whom are within seven years of having received the terminal advanced degree in their respective areas of study, spend four to ten months in a collegial residential setting at the John W. Kluge Center in the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building.
The fellows are selected by the Librarian of Congress based on the appropriateness of their proposed research application to Library collections by LC staff and recommended by a panel of their peers assembled by the National Endowment of Humanities.
