How it all works

Felicitations, Rama!

Rama Srinivasan, PhD student in the Department of Anthropology, has won a tuition fellowship from the Cogut Center to attend the School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell University June-July 2014. Rama joins an international group of scholars who will participate in seminars led this year by Simon Critchley, Mark BN Hansen, Sianne Ngai, and Annelise Riles.

The tuition fellowship is offered each year to senior graduate students or junior faculty at Brown and selected participants are guaranteed a place in the prestigious and competitive SCT program.
