Please join us in congratulating Distinguished Professor of English Elizabeth Maddock Dillon and PhD candidate William Bond for their selection as faculty fellow and graduate fellow, respectively, for the seventh annual Northeastern University Humanities Center Resident Fellowship Program. Taken from the Humanities Center website:

The Humanities Center Fellowship program brings together scholars across disciplines to pursue research, collaborate around a common theme, workshop their writing, and share their research with the Northeastern community.

This year’s fellows responded to the following call on the theme of, “Disruption and Displacement“: Displacement, a term in physics that evokes material dislocation, can also refer to political, emotional, and aesthetic disruptions. Literature and art can function as disruptive cultural or political interventions. Aesthetic innovations, such as new genres, and innovations in business may purposely disrupt. Mindful of the current refugee crises, displacements caused by climate change, cultural appropriations and re-appropriations as forms of displacement, and translation as one example of a strategy that might ease the effects of displacement, our goal is to encourage cross-disciplinary conversations that deepen our understanding of disruption and displacement.

The fellowship group will be facilitated by Lori Lefkovitz, Professor of English, Ruderman Professor and Director of the Jewish Studies Program and Director of the Humanities Center.
