2009-10 Faculty Fellows
“My semester at the Cogut Center as a Faculty Fellow has been productive and intellectually refreshing. I've benefited in particular from exposure to other disciplines and approaches to the humanities, new relationships with other members of the Brown community, and the opportunity to concentrate on my work in a more sustained manner than I would have if I had been teaching a full load. ”
—Ethan Pollock, History
Faculty Fellow, Spring 2009
Brown boasts outstanding faculty members whose work both challenges and redefines the boundaries of the humanities. Cogut Center Faculty Fellows pursue research and writing projects during semester-long fellowships at the Center and gather for Fellows' Seminars on a regular basis to discuss their work in progress. Faculty Fellows have the option of spending a sabbatical semester at the Cogut Center or teaching an upper-level seminar course based on their research project.
