The Awards Committee for the Frederick E. Crowe Bursary is pleased to announce that the 2012 Bursary has been awarded to Mr. Andrew Barrette, a younger Lonergan scholar who is a doctoral student in philosophy at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois, U.S.A.
Mr. Barrette’s philosophical research regards the thematic similarities and differences between the work of Lonergan and those influenced by him, on the one hand, and that of scholars in the phenomenological tradition, on the other. Although the resources in phenomenology at SIU are ample, those in Lonergan studies are less ample. Hence Mr. Barrette will use this award to defray some of his expenses for travelling periodically from Carbondale, near the southern tip of Illinois, to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in order to participate in a course taught at Marquette University by Prof. Robert Doran.
Warm congratulations are due to Andrew Barrette, whose proposal emerged from a field of fine applications. The deadline for younger scholars to apply for the 2013 Crowe Bursary is 15 December 2013.
