Stanford Humanities Center announces 2012-2013 Fellows; international scholars

Stanford Humanities Center

The Stanford Humanities Center recently named 28 scholars who will pursue individual research and writing at Stanford for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Chosen from a pool of over 400 applicants, next year’s fellows include 10 external faculty, nine internal faculty and eight dissertation students. One other scholar has been selected for a yearlong Arts Writer/Practitioner fellowship that is jointly sponsored by the Humanities Center and the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts.

Founded in 1980, the Stanford Humanities Center is the largest university-based humanities research center in the United States. To date, nearly 800 scholars from across the United States and around the globe have been fellows in residence.

Past fellows have included three of Stanford’s four Pulitzer Prize winners:  Stanford historians CARL DEGLER, 1983-84, and DAVID KENNEDY, 1989-90;  and Stanford political scientist JACK RAKOVE, 1988-89 and 2000-01.  Harvard University’s President, DREW FAUST, was a fellow during the 1983-84 academic year.

All of the fellows will contribute to the Stanford community through their participation in workshops, lectures and courses. As part of the Undergraduate Fellowship program at the Humanities Center, each fellow serves as a mentor to an undergraduate on a project of mutual interest.

In addition to the 28 individuals selected for year-long fellowships, the Humanities Center and the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) have invited four international scholars to participate in four-week residencies as part of a jointly sponsored international program. Nominated by Stanford departments and research centers, the international fellows will have offices at the Humanities Center and will be affiliated with their nominating units, the Humanities Center and FSI.

The Humanities Center also will bring international visitors from France and India as part of the international programs at the Humanities Center.
