2022-2023 Kaplan Faculty Fellows Announced!

April 28, 2022

Congratulations to the new cohort of Faculty Fellows for 2022-2023! Juried by humanities faculty from outside Northwestern, this competitive residency enables Northwestern faculty to pursue independent projects of significance to the humanities while immersed in an interdisciplinary community of scholars.

These eight faculty are joined by our Library Fellow and Affiliate for next year. Library Fellows pursue their independent research within Kaplan, and Library Affiliates serve as Library liaisons and members of the Institute community. The new Faculty and Library Fellows for 2022-2023 are:
