2020 Summer Humanities Research Fellows Announced

IRH Director Steven Nadler is pleased to announce the 9 UW-Madison faculty members selected as the Summer Humanities Research Fellowship (SHRF) cohort for 2020. Funded by the College of Letters & Science and the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education (OVCRGE), the SHRF program and workshop support tenured faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in pursuing their “next big project” in the humanities.
