Welcoming our 2022-23 Postdoctoral Fellows

The following fellows joined us on July 1, 2022:

Sarah Bruno, who received her PhD in cultural anthropology in 2021 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2021-2022, she was a postdoctoral fellow in ethnography of race and digitial technologies in the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University. Her research and art lie at the intersections of performance, diaspora and colonialism.

Carlos Kelly graduated with a PhD in Latinx studies and video games studies in 2022 from Ohio State University, where he also received a graduate minor in women, gender and sexuality studies. His research merges the fields of Latinx studies and video game studies by interrogating the liminal spaces associated with video games, specifically video game consoles, and how Latinx theory, through mestizaje, can open up new modes of analysis and study.

The Humanities Research Center is also pleased to welcome a young scholar to a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in Law, Political Thought and the Humanities. This fellowship is affiliated with our Program in Politics, Law and Social Thought.

Michael Schwarz, who received his PhD in philosophy in 2022 from Northwestern University. He holds a PhD in law from Humboldt-University Berlin, specializes in social and political philosophy, ethics and critical theory, and has interests in philosophy of language and philosophy of law.
