Meet a Short-Term Fellow: Christian Bell

I come to the short-term fellowship as a scholar of performance with a vested interest in how we collectively shift the emphasis of the Land-Grant/Land-Grab university from economic progress to the struggle for equity and inclusion. In “Changing the Story About Higher Education's Public Purposes and Work,” Scott Peters states that, “we need to pay attention, in each of our particular locations, to the ways we and others tell the story of our public purposes and work. By story, I do not mean just history.

Announcing the First Short-Term Fellow Cohorts at the IAS

From May-June, the two new cohorts of our pilot short-term fellows program will gather virtually to share research and make productive connections. Open to all University of Minnesota system faculty, graduate students, staff, and to community members across the state of Minnesota, we are pleased to say we received an overwhelming number of applications. 

Please help us welcome these new fellows, and stay tuned for longer introductions to each individual and their work in the coming weeks!


Announcing the 2021–2022 IAS Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows!

We are delighted to announce the IAS Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows for 2021–2022. 


Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows spend a year in residence at the IAS. Together with our Faculty Fellows and Scholars in Residence, they constitute a supportive interdisciplinary intellectual community in which they work intensively on their own research and creative projects and meet regularly to discuss their work and exchange ideas.

We look forward to welcoming each of these scholars to our fellows community!
