The Stanford Humanities Center has awarded 23 fellowships for the upcoming academic year. The cohort includes scholars of history, philosophy, music and English, among other humanities disciplines. Chosen from a pool of nearly 300 applicants, the fellows are Stanford faculty, advanced Stanford graduate students, and academics from California, across the United States and Europe.

“The Humanities Center is delighted to be welcoming our new fellows for 2016-17. They come from as near as Berkeley and as far as Amsterdam, and represent an exciting array of fields and topics ranging from the arts in Africa to literature in North and South Korea to Aristotelian philosophy,” said CAROLINE WINTERER, the center’s director.

During their residential year at the Humanities Center, fellows will pursue individual research and writing for the full academic year. They will also be contributing to the Stanford community through their participation in workshops, lectures and courses.

The Stanford Humanities Center’s fellowships are made possible by gifts and grants from the following individuals, foundations and Stanford offices: The Esther Hayfer Bloom Estate, Theodore H. and Frances K. Geballe, Mimi and Peter Haas, Marta Sutton Weeks, the Mericos Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the offices of the Dean of Research and the Dean of Humanities and Sciences.

The full list of incoming fellows is posted on the Humanities Center website.
