Faculty Fellows

"The varied selection of topics, themselves representative of various disciplines and methodologies, has broadened my own intellectual horizons. To my mind, this is exactly what a humanities center should do."

                                                   —Lewis C. Seifert, French Studies
                                                       Faculty Fellow, Spring 2006


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.
