Faculty Fellows Meet at Hyde Hall

The Institute for the Arts and Humanities is pleased to announce its 2018-2019 cohort of Faculty Fellows.  The Faculty Fellows Program provides on-campus leaves for faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences to work on interdisciplinary scholarly projects. Fellows also gather weekly around a meal to discuss their projects and professional development goals.

The deadline for 2019-2020 fellowships is Sept. 27, 2018.

Faculty Fellows typically demonstrate a strong track record in working with faculty and students across disciplines, engage in scholarship that makes significant contributions to their respective fields, and demonstrate the potential to effectively communicate the results of their research to a broad audience.
