Davis, Peterfreund, Lesh Recieve 2015-16 Humanities Center Fellowships

Professors Theo Davis and Stuart Peterfreund and Doctoral candidate Charlie Lesh are recipients of Northeastern Humanities Center Fellowships for 2015-2016.  The fellowship theme is “By Design.”   Professor Peterfreund’s book project, in some respects a sequel to his study Turning Points in Natural Theology from Bacon to Darwin: The Way of the Argument from Design (2012), takes up one  the anti-Darwinian paradigm of biological development currently known as “intelligent design.”   Professor Davis is beginning a project that takes up exploring the tension in fiction between a representation of human life as the result of design on the one hand and on the other the attempt of such fiction  to capture the a “real life” increasingly understood, from the nineteenth century on, as defined by qualities of arbitrariness, randomness, and uncertainty.  Professors Peterfreund and Davis will be join a group of seven other colleagues from CSSH, CCIS, CAMD, Bouvé, and the School of Law. Charlie Lesh will be one of two Graduate Fellows and he’ll will work on his dissertation project, “The Spatial Rhetorical Function of Graffiti Writing in Boston, Massachusetts.”
