2021-2022 Fellow Derek Baron discusses their work as PhD candidate in NYU’s music department and their favorite parts of the fellowship program in this short by Jennifer Lin
Each year, fellowships are awarded to three advanced doctoral students in the humanities whose dissertation research shows particular promise. Disciplines include, but are not limited to, history, art history, music, philosophy, cultural studies, literary and language studies, religious studies, drama and performance studies, cinema studies, and gender studies.
Doctoral Student Fellows of the Center participate with the Faculty Fellows in the Center’s weekly luncheon seminars as well as in other events during the year. Doctoral Student Fellows are also provided with shared office space at 20 Cooper Square for the duration of the fellowships. The aim of the residency is to allow students to finish their dissertations during the fellowship year.
Fellows are expected to be in residence in New York within the University community for the entire year of their residency. The weekly luncheon seminar is mandatory for all doctoral student participants.
