Description

The Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme is pleased to announce the eight recipients of the 2021-2022 Graduate Team Fellowship competition. The incoming fellows, currently pursuing either PhD or MFA degrees, join us from seven different departments.

To date, Global Arts + Humanities has supported 32 graduate students from 15 different departments, schools, centers or programs: Art; Comparative Studies; Dance; Design; East Asian Languages and Literatures; English; Folklore Studies; Germanic Languages and Literature; History; History of Art; Linguistics; Music; Spanish and Portuguese; Theatre; and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.

The Graduate Team Fellowship program at Ohio State is the first team-based, arts and humanities graduate fellowship program in the United States. The Global Arts + Humanities Graduate Team Fellowships are financial awards made on the basis of academic merit through a division-wide competition. These fellowships are given to recognize the cross-disciplinary aspirations and accomplishments of graduate students in the division of arts and humanities. The fellowship competition is open to students whose projects engage cross-disciplinary critical and/or creative practices as well as students who seek to foster the development of participatory networks with local Columbus communities. Fellows may be at any phase of their dissertation research or terminal degree project.
