2023-2024 Kaplan Fellows Announced!

April 21, 2023

Congratulations to the new cohort of Faculty Fellows for 2023-2024! 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 nine faculty are joined by our Library Fellow and Library Affiliate for next year. The Library Fellowship offers a half-time release from regular work in order to pursue an independent research project, and the Library Affiliate serves as Library liaison and ambassador for Northwestern's humanities community.

To read descriptions of each Fellow's research project, please visit the 2023-2024 Fellows page.

The Faculty Fellows, Library Fellow, and Library Affiliate for 2023-2024 are:
