A Southern Oregon University English and literature professor has received a Fulbright Scholar Award, providing her with funding to do research at the University of Liverpool.

Professor Diana Maltz will do research for her new book, "The Child in the House: Lifestyle Aestheticism, Visual Culture, and Family Identity, 1880-1910." In a news release announcing the award, she described Liverpool as a remarkable city for any scholar of Victorian studies, praising its libraries, art galleries, and university community.

SOU officials said the US-UK Fulbright Commission is the only bilateral, transatlantic scholarship program that offers awards for study or research in any field.
