OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Current Fellows

Each year, the Center for the Humanities supports the scholarly projects of OSU faculty in the form of Resident Research Fellowships. Applications are evaluated by an advisory board composed of experienced faculty selected from various disciplines within the arts and humanities. The awards provide a term release from teaching as well as office space and administrative support so that fellows may focus on research and writing. During their tenure at the Center, fellows participate in our lecture series and other public programs.
