Daniel Tuzzeo (Ph.D. candidate) was awarded a 2018-19 Mellon Foundation Dissertation Fellowship through the Stanford Humanities Center. His dissertation, titled “Crafting Cosmologies: Buddhist Cartography and the Spatial Imagination in Medieval China,” examines sixth- to tenth-century Dunhuang manuscripts and murals that map the imagined Buddhist cosmos.

The Mellon Dissertation Fellowships, which are generously funded by the Mellon Foundation, are awarded to advanced doctoral students whose work is of the highest quality and whose academic record to date indicates a timely progression toward completion of the degree. In general, the Center offers up to 8 fellowships in each category (external, internal, and dissertation) for a total of approximately 24 fellows.
