Announcing the 2021–2022 IAS Faculty Fellows!


We are delighted to announce the IAS Residential Faculty Fellows for 2021–2022. 

Faculty fellows spend a semester in residence at the IAS. Together with our Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellows (who spend a full academic year 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!
