Center selects fellows for 2001-02 academic year
Stanford Humanities Center has appointed 30 fellows
for the 2001-02 academic year.
fellows will be in residence at the center, meeting
regularly in formal and informal sessions while
pursuing individual research projects in humanistic
disciplines. They hail from various universities and
fields, and their projects run the gamut: The gods of
politics in Greek cities; a historical and
philosophical approach to explanation and application
in mathematics; and Schleiermacher's philosophical
ethics are just a few of the subjects.
fellows are Stanford graduate students, and nine are
Stanford faculty members. As a condition of the
fellowship, the faculty fellows are asked to make an
intellectual contribution to the Stanford community
by, for example, participating in a research
workshop, teaching a course or organizing a
coming fall marks the inauguration of the center's
Rockefeller Fellowships in Black Performing Arts,
established in conjunction with the Committee on
Black Performing Arts. The program will bring two
fellows to Stanford each year for the next three
