The WGSS Program would like to congratulate the newly chosen Northeastern Humanities Center fellows for 2020-2021. The fellowship program allows scholars of many disciplines to collaborate on research around a common theme, sharing their work with the Northeastern community. This year’s theme is “Disruption and Displacement,” responding to refugee crises, displacements caused by climate change, as well as cultural appropriations and re-appropriations as forms of displacement. The goal of the program is to encourage conversations about these issues across disciplines to deepen our collective understanding of disruption and displacement.
This year’s chosen fellows include Heather Streets-Salter, Professor of History and member of the WGSS executive committee as well as Shalanda Baker, Professor of Law, Public Policy, and Urban Affairs, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, Distinguished Professor of English, and Rachel Rosenbloom, Professor of Law, all of whom are affiliated faculty with the WGSS program. A full list of Fellows and their projects can be found on the Humanities Center website. Congratulations to all!
