Congratulations to the 2024 – 25 “Erasure” Fellows

2024 – 2025 “Erasure” Theme: We are living at a moment of erasure and the threat of erasure. Examples include book censorship; revisionist histories and denialism; “alternative” truths; refusal to acknowledge impending crises such as climate change; undermining of democratic and academic institutions; limitations on freedom of expression; dismantling of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives; and obliterative forms of violence directed against people, populations, communities, and cultures. Erasure can invite forms of recovery and redress such as corrective histories; commemoration; archival research; art restoration; palimpsestic writing; and restorative justice. Digital humanities and AI join these traditional disciplinary approaches in providing opportunities for redress.
