Franke Undergraduate Fellows Announced for 2021-2022

June 10, 2021

The Kaplan Humanities Institute is delighted to announce the Franke Undergraduate Fellows for 2021-2022!

Franke Undergraduate Fellows spend their senior year in residence with the interdisciplinary cohort of Kaplan Fellows (Faculty, Library, and Franke Graduate). They work on their research projects with a faculty supervisor from their home department and also participate in the Senior Humanities Seminar (HUM 398) in fall and winter quarters. This seminar provides support in shaping the fellows' research, with faculty mentoring in critical analysis, constructive critique, and creative presentation—especially on how to create a public talk for audiences outside their discipline.

Meet the 2021-2022 Franke Undergraduate Fellows:
