A select group of faculty members in School of Humanities have been awarded one-semester fellowships during the 2022-23 academic year, with the goal of facilitating the initiation, completion, or development of individual or collaborative research projects. Our Faculty Fellows meet regularly to share their research and have the opportunity to initiate other activities, including hosting a speaker or workshop, and convening a reading or writing group, with the support of the HRC.
