We are pleased to announce the Center for the Humanities’ fellows for the upcoming year, 2018-2019. The Center will host 16 fellows: five doctoral student fellows, two public humanities fellows, one post-doctoral fellow, and eight faculty fellows. Our fellows represent over 12 different disciplines across three schools.
The Center’s fellowship program brings together a group of distinguished, established, and emerging scholars selected in a rigorous review process. Fellows undergo a year of intensive scholarship aided by discussion, dialogue, and regular exchange with their cohort.
Public Humanities Fellows also participate in a cross-university cohort through a program with Humanities New York and nine partner institutions, including New York University.
Read the 2018-2019 fellows’ bios, and learn more about the fellowship programs at the NYU Center for the Humanities.
